Cape Town - The terms of reference of the Presidential Remuneration Commission on pay in the public sector have been finalised and gazetted, President Jacob Zuma said on Monday.

Replying in writing to a Parliamentary question, Zuma said the commission would be made up solely of former chief justice Sandile Ngcobo.

"They [terms of reference] provide for a commission to be appointed to investigate remuneration and conditions of service in the public service... with the remuneration of educators receiving priority attention...," Zuma said.

The terms of reference included:

  • matters relating to organisational development;
  • job evaluation and grading;
  • recruitment;
  • appointments and promotions;
  • human resource planning and performance management systems; and
  • policies and practices in the public service.

The commission was expected to complete its work within eight months.

"The chairperson [Ngcobo] will determine the methodology of conducting the work of the commission including the drafting of the project plan," Zuma said.

The work of the commission was delayed by several months after the SA Democratic Teachers' Union (Sadtu) threatened strike action.

It demanded, among others, that Basic Education Minister Angie Motshekga be fired and her director general Bobby Soobrayan be investigated for allegedly breaching the Public Finance Management Act.

Sadtu has since dropped some of its demands after Motshekga announced Soobrayan would be probed.
