STRATEGIC GOALS AND PRIORITIES2012 - 2017 GOALS • LG delivering equitable and sustainable services • Safe and healthy environment and communities • Coherent Planning and Socio-economic development at the local level • Effective and responsive LG accountable to communities • Human Capital development in local government • Financial and organisationally capacitated municipalities • An effective and efficient administration APEX PRIORITIES • Fiscal and Financial Management • Legislative and Policy Review • Municipal Capacity Building
CONCLUSION • The new 2012-17 Strategy and its accompanying structured engagement and support initiatives gives SALGA an opportunity to strengthen our relationship with existing stakeholders as well as to build new ones to play our role effectively. • We firmly believe that if the 3 Apex Priorities as identified are addressed, we would have gone some way to meeting the objectives of developmental LG. • The next 5 years will be critical to securing the long-term sustainability and credibility of LG – SALGA must lead in realising the constitutional imperative of developmental LG.
SALGA will champion and contribute to the achievement of these goals in the following manner: • Deliver on its mandate through a set of strategic objectives and KPA’s that aim at contributing to goal achievement. • Implement structured partnerships (through its IGR strategy and stakeholder management strategy) that contribute to delivery against the goals • Contribute to initiatives led by other stakeholders that focus on the SALGA goals. • Monitor the sector in terms of progress that is being achieved against these goals CONCLUSION

DETERMINING AND ADVOCATING FOR A POLICY AGENDA FOR LG • Informed by Ruling Party Policy and Elective Conferences in 2012 and discussion documents: • Many policy decisions will have profound impact on LG. It was therefore critical that its representative voice be heard during critical policy shaping process in order to ensure sustainability and integrity of LG. • SALGA (as a vanguard for its members) thus prepared a policy response to the issues of interest to LG. • NEC of SALGA hosted a Policy Workshop in June 2012 to discuss the formal SALGA positions which was presented to the Ruling Party as organised LG’s views on the key issues.
SALGA EMERGING POLICY AGENDA Key Policy Issues include: • Differentiated approach to municipal planning, financing and support; • A policy and regulatory framework on differentiation must be adopted by government. • Increase the share of nationally raised revenue to LG and review the LGES formula. • Further devolution of functions to metropolitan municipalities. • Infrastructure funding for cities and rural municipalities. • Explore new revenue raising powers for some municipalities. • Creating a new type of category A municipalities • Demarcation issues; • Strengthen political governance of municipalities;
SALGA EMERGING POLICY AGENDA • Review of the two-tier LG system; • Reform the Role of Districts • Stronger category B municipalities be removed completely from Districts Municipalities. • Districts must focus only on strengthening coordination, planning and support function. • A clear model for funding Districts Municipalities must be developed. • Improve Ward Committees and Community Participation; • Strengthen Cooperative Governance, including role of provinces; • Carefully examine the implications of a proposal for single elections;
Membership levy review • The matter of the levy formula review was also tabled at Conference, although the membership approved the review for 2011/2012, Conference referred the matter of the outer years to NEC and PEC’s for consideration. • Therefore, the budget for the MTEF period 2012/13 to 2014/15 contains the review of the membership levy formula as depicted on the table above.

SALGA achieved 84% of pre-determined objectives as per the APP 2011/12. The 16% of targets not achieved was mainly due to a lack in resources and budgetary constraints. PERFORMANCE AGAINST APP 2011/12
The year under review has been characterised by the transition in SALGA leadership as a result of the Local Government elections which took place on 18 May 2011. CHALLENGES • At the provincial conferences preceding the National Conference, provincial PECs were elected followed by the election of the new incoming SALGA NEC at the National Conference. This leadership transition impacted on the ability of SALGA to effectively convene its governance structures during the first and second quarters of the financial year. • At the provincial conference of SALGA KZN, a resolution was passed for SALGA KZN to be re-integrated with the rest of the unitary SALGA structure. In terms of planning and budgeting reporting, SALGA KZN is now part of the SALGA Strategic Plan 2012-2017 and Annual Performance Plan 2012/13.
A formidable challenge is that the budget of SALGA is inadequate to fulfil its mandate. The budget is also difficult to determine as membership and payment of levies by municipalities are entirely voluntary. SALGA has responded by initiating a comprehensive investigation into its funding model, alongside a concerted effort to lobby national government to support a larger and more sustainable funding model. • SALGA has done very well in terms of giving effect to its mandate during 2011/12. This achievement invariably leads to a heightened expectation in terms of its capacity to meet the growing expectation to be the voice of local government. CHALLENGES
It is recommended that Conference: • Adopt the SALGA Annual Report 2012/13 as approved by NEC • Adopt the SALGA Annual Financial Statements 2012/13 as approved by NEC
