Codes of Good Practice on Black Economic Empowerment

Integrated Transport Sector Codes

B-BBEE Sub-Sector Code for Public Sector - Transport

2. Department of Transport Undertaking

2.2 Three Pillars of the Scorecard



2.2.1 Firstly, it has an internal focus that seeks to encourage the DOT (which includes Provincial Departments of Transport) to pursue a transformation agenda according to the broad guidelines set out in the National B-BBEE Strategy and the Transport  Public Sector B-BBEE Scorecard.   The DOT will use its procurement spending to accelerate B-BBEE objectives amongst suppliers and recipients of subsidies, permits and licenses. It will also make significant investments in human resource  development, delivering a cadre of highly-skilled public servants who can make a contribution to the SA economy at large.


2.2.2 Secondly, the Sub-Sector Code seeks to encourage transport SOEs and agencies that report to the Department to implement aggressive transformation policies in line with the National B-BBEE Strategy and Transport Public Sector B-BBEE  Scorecard.  The  DOT  will  also develop technology-based tools and procedures to systematically monitor the progress of these entities in implementing their B-BBEE targets. This will require the DOT to invest additional financial and human resources.


2.2.3 Thirdly, the Sub-Sector Code has an external focus because the DOT is the facilitator and the custodian of the process. Stakeholders expect the Department to play a critical role in the Implementation of the Sub-Sector Code. This will require that the Department invests new resources (financial and human) and develops the capacity to meaningfully participate in the new activities and initiatives that the Sub-Sector Code process will spawn.


To achieve these objectives will require the establishment of an inter-departmental B-BBEE task team, chaired by the Director of B-BBEE, to drive implementation. It will also require all units within the Department to integrate B-BBEE objectives into their policies, programmes and key performance indicators (KPls) used to evaluate managers.
