These projections are done based on the Assumption that some projects will be scaled back

The projections do not include UYF's Operating Overheads

The commitment figures are up to 30 September 2005
Current Funding Situation
   UYF received R855 million from govt. in 2001.
   R780 million has been spent/committed
    contractually and will be paid out until 2006/7/8
   Taking out Auditors definition of commitment,
    UYF is actually fully committed. Auditors only
    recognize those commitments that have been
    reduced to writing
       To protect itself against non delivery UYF signs normally
        for 1 year only.
       However, commitment – 3 years at least
Cumulative Report

Cumulative Report
Factors That Have Evolved
   Lack of capacity in rural areas, govt.
    departments/ NGOs affect time it takes to
    implement a programme. Often a new
    organisation has to be established (e.g. National
    Youth Service Programme in Limpopo/ Free

   Leveraging UYF resources with third parties has
    decreased the amount of funds needed from UYF
    to implement programmes. Raised R216 million
    in 2004/5 from third parties.

For Year Under Review   (income statement)
   Consolidation of Audited Financial Statements
       GAAP requires application of AC132 which stipulates the
        consolidation of underlying investments due to control
        (why control by UYF?).
       Materiality level of UYF set at R700 000 due to small
        amount of assets under control and amount lent as at
        year end
       Reporting requirements - burden on SMEs.
       To Address:
            Adopting International Financial Reporting Standards (fair
             value reporting i.s.o consolidation)- IAS 28
            Eastern, Central & Southern Federation of Accountants
             (SAICA is part of) proposes New Guide on Financial
             Reporting for SMEs. Will reduce reporting complexities

   SME regulatory burden more serious for young
   Access to UYF services
       Issue is about scale
       Scale limited because UYF was set up with short term in
        mind. Therefore need to sustain few programmes
        instead of a “spray gun approach”
       Growth limited due to unavailability of viable service
        providers in rural areas. Therefore, growth dictated by
        presence of Service Providers

   To address:
       Propose to set up UYF outlets
       Outlets will also facilitate integration of services
Plans 2005-2006 (highlights)
   Support government’s 6% growth target focusing
    especially on the second economy

   Skills development & transfer
       Supporting more FET Colleges
       Support project consolidate (DBSA/ Dept of Provincial &
        Local govt.)
       Launch the Graduate Development Programme (Social
        Capital for the unemployed graduate)
       Implement Service Programmes along volunteer lines –
        e.g. teaching Maths and English, caring for orphans or
        child headed households
Plans 2005 - 2006 (highlights)
   Business Development Support
       Expand the Entrepreneurship Education project to more
        schools and provinces
       Increase Entrepreneurship Education for out-of-school
       Launch the Mentorship voucher product & reinstatement
        of the company registration voucher
       Launch the Business Opportunities Support Service
        (linking youth to business opportunities)
