         Aim and objectives of the IFMS

 Aim
   – To provide an Integrated Financial Management System
     (IFMS) to National and Provincial Government that
     integrates human resource, payroll, financial and supply
     chain management and business intelligence
 Objectives
   – Replace aging technologies
   – Enable implementation of Public Finance Management Act
     and Public Service Act
   – Re-focus SITA towards its core mandate
   – Develop Information and Communication Technology (ICT)
     skills within the country
                            Why IFMS?

• Need to replace legacy systems
   – Lack of inherent interoperability and business intelligence services
   – Increasing difficult to maintain and upgrade
   – Challenges to support changing policy environment
• Need to provide centralized solutions to standardize on technology and
  leverage on economies of scale
• Automation of business processes to ensure greater efficiency
• Improve quality of data
   – Improved access to data
   – Elimination of manual data capturing processes
• Potential cost savings – for example through elimination of manual
  leave capturing

 The following lead site implementations have been
     National Treasury (AM/PMM)
     Limpopo: Treasury, Roads and Transport, Local Government and
      Housing and Agriculture (AM)
     Public Service and Administration (HRM)

 The following lead site implementations are underway:
     Limpopo Department of Health (AM)
     Free State Department of Education (HRM)
     Department of Defense (AM/PMM)

      Integrated Development Environment: IBM
      Technical Support Services: Bytes
      Procurement Management: ICT Works Consortium
      Catalogue Management : Pilog
      Business Intelligence: Praxis
 Implementation Partners (155 in total):

     province: Gauteng (101), North West (32), Free State (32),
     Mpumalanga (37), Limpopo (55), Kwa-Zulu Natal (64), Western
     Cape (56), Eastern Cape (47), and Northern Cape (31)
    To date, 44 implementation partners have been accredited
    Partners will support national roll-out of IFMS                 12
              Estimated Cost of IFMS

 Expenditure to date:
     R 559million
 Funding for outstanding product development, hosting
  infrastructure and implementation cost will be dealt with through the
  MTEF processes

                    Reasons for Slippages

 IFMS was not fully implemented and rolled out to
  government as envisaged, primarily due to:
     Complexity of the IFMS programme
     Longer than planned procurement and contract negotiation processes
     The lack of full capacity in SITA IFMS team
     The additional responsibility of moving Phase III deliverables (acquisition
      and implementation of COTS products) to Phase II placed an additional
      burden on the IFMS project
     Readiness and change management issues of lead sites
     Misalignment of product procurement and product development
     Lack of functional skills in some departments

         Strategy to remedy the situation

 The IFMS project team was too optimistic about the
  timelines and have learnt through experience:
     A revised memorandum will be submitted to Cabinet that includes
      more realistic timelines
     SITA’s capacity problems have been addressed with the SITA
      turnaround and the capability will be augmented with industry
      partners upon conclusion of contracts
     Contract negotiations will be comprehensive and streamlined
     The IFMS architecture is being institutionalised, which will result in
      less complexities being experienced in developing the outstanding
     Governance and oversight arrangements to be improved

                    IFMS: Next steps

 Finalise development of outstanding modules including
  adjudication and contracting
 SITA, together with DPSA and NT, will compile a strategy
  for the rollout of IFMS, which will be consulted with relevant
  stakeholders in 2012/13
 National roll-out of selected modules to commence in

 Relationship between PERSAL clean-up and IFMS

• Important to ensure that accurate and “clean” data is
  migrated from PERSAL to IFMS HR and Payroll systems at
• PERSAL will still be utilized as a payroll system and as a
  source of reporting on HR in the Public Service for a
  number of years until IFMS is fully implemented

                           PERSAL Clean-up

•   The DSPA conducted PERSAL clean-up workshops in a number of national
    departments and provincial administrations that are responsible for the
    implementation on the Public Service Act/Regulations:
     – 8 Provincial Administrations (Gauteng outstanding)
     – 10 National Departments
•   The workshops were aimed at raising awareness amongst managers and
    officials about the value of improvement of PERSAL information and utilization
    of HR management information for planning and decision making. The
    PERSAL clean-up methodology was also explained to the participants.

                          PERSAL Clean-up

o The DPSA utilised the Offices of the Premiers as points of entry in
  provinces for the PERSAL clean-up workshops. The Offices of the
  Premiers then facilitated the organization of workshops with all
  departments in their respective provinces
o On the first day in all provinces, briefing sessions were conducted with the
  management representatives from all departments including the Office of
  the Premiers except in Limpopo and North West
o In other provinces such as KZN, a presentation on the quality of data for
  the province was also presented to the HoD Forum
o HR Forums in other provinces such as Limpopo were also utilized for
  presentations on the quality of data
o In summary, there was overall commitment on the part of senior
  management and staff to support and implement the project

                          PERSAL Clean-up

1.The DPSA will continue enforcing compliance through:

   • Implementation support interventions
   • Continuous monitoring of implementation of recommendations based
     quarterly reports submitted to departments
   • Continuous monitoring based on Project Plans submitted with
   • Notification of non-compliance to Executive Authority

2. Strengthening accountability

   • Reporting of data quality analysis on regular basis
   • Continue with data quality assessment and will use August 2011 data
     as baseline to assess the level of improvement in the quality of data
