New EPWP beneficiary wage rates approved
NEW Expanded Public Works Programme (EPWP)

NEW Expanded Public Works Programme (EPWP) beneficiary rates were approved at an Executive Committee meeting held on 30 October. The following wage rates will be implemented effective from 1 October 2018.

A report tabled at the meeting states that during the audit of the annual financial statements of eThekwini Municipality for the year ending 30 June 2018 it was noted that the Council decisions dated 22 June 2016 gave guidelines for the minimum EPWP beneficiary daily wage rate.

However, there was no clear guidance on the maximum wage rate as well as a lack of categorisation of workers. The report stated that the ambiguity in the EPWP beneficiary wage rates system is a risk in terms of financial management of the Municipality hence the need to develop and implement appropriate procedures to regulate EPWP beneficiary daily rates.

The EPWP programme was launched in 2004 as a key government initiative that will contribute to government’s policy priorities in terms of decent work and sustainable livelihoods. The report concludes that the approval of the EPWP beneficiary rates is key to adhering to audit recommendations. A further report will be submitted to the Executive Committee detailing the grading outcomes.
