                    NOTES FOR THE SUPPORT TEAM FOR REGIONAL OPERATIONAL PLANS

1 INTRODUCTION
   These notes serve to provide guidance to the Team that will be supporting regions in compiling their Operational Plans for
   the 2008/09 Financial Year.
   There are General issues that should be considered when assistance is provided to regions and Regional Specific issues to
   be addressed in each region. Section 3 below captures the former, while Section 4 deals with the latter.



2 PURPOSE OF THE SUPPORT

   The support to be provided to the Regions is to be focused on:
   1. Assistance to Regions in developing their Operational Plans
   2. Assistance to Regions in developing their Business Plans



3 GENERAL ISSUES

     Local Government Support – Top Management has issued a directive that our support to local government should
    create an enabling environment for DWAF to Regulate and should be guided by the Priorities reflected in the Draft Water
    Services Regulatory Strategy. The support to local governments, as captured in Municipal Support Plans should
    demonstrate how the regions intends to provide support to municipalities in the areas as reflected in the Work Plan under
    the Local Government Support sub-Programme. If the existing MSP / Business Plan does not talk to these, it will have to be
    revised accordingly, in consultation with municipalities;

     Non-quantifiable Service Delivery Targets - In the light of the fact that DWAF is not responsible for provision of basic
    services, it is not expected that there will be quantifiable targets for these in the regional work plans. In this case, it is only
    possible to support local municipalities to achieve their targets based on the MIG allocations they have. Therefore,
    measurable outputs can be anything but quantifiable targets which are the responsibilities of municipalities. However
    regions may indicate, if they so wish to, the targets that the municipalities will be aiming to achieve if these are known;

     Quantifiable Service Delivery Targets – the Department has funding for and is therefore responsible for Bucket
    Eradication; Schools; Clinics and Regional Bulk. Thus for these programmes there should be quantifiable targets per region;

     Compliance Monitoring and Enforcement Units - Establishment of a unit in each region, with adequate capacity

     Transfers – a range of deliverables per region is included in section 3 of this report and should be adhered to;
     Drinking Water Quality Support – all regions should ensure they have adequate capacity to support local government
    in drinking water quality management issues
     Water Security Plan – development of Reconciliation Strategies for demarcation regions
     Water Use and Regulation Units – the following roles are amongst those that regions should undertake and should be
    noted as follows:
        o        Participation in the development of the Strategy and Model

        o        Coordination of Compliance Monitoring and Enforcement intervention programmes in their respective regions

        o        Identification of support requirements by local government to be able to comply with regulatory requirements

        o         Development of support plans, in consultation with Water Sector Support Units and ensure that same
              is included in the 2009/10 Municipal Support Plans

     National Targets – the following National Targets are expressed clearly in the Consolidated Departmental Business
    Plan – regions are therefore expected to indicate their contribution (targets) to the attainment of same:
        o        Municipal Support Plans – Development and Implementation of MSPs
        o        Resource-Poor Farmers – 100% of the allocated budget should be utilised

        o       Resource-Poor Farmers – at least one (1) Resource-Poor Farmers Project should be implemented in each
              Region

        o        Schools Water Services Programme – at least 1376 schools should be served

        o        2020 Vision Programme – all (100%) schools should be participating by March 2009
        o        Regional Bulk – 32 Projects Implemented and 49 Feasibility Studies conducted
4 REGION SPECIFIC ISSUES
