Gazetted Confirmation of extension of Mandatory Grant submission date

By sylviahammond, 7 May, 2020

Skills Development Facilitators (SDF)s will know that there has been considerable discussion about the 2020 Mandatory Grant submission date.

A draft document of the Department of Higher Education & Training (DHET) - intended for consultation and including an extension - was circulated.

Then the confirmation final document was received indicating an extension from end April to 31 May 2020.

However, a number of Sector Education & Training Authorities (SETA)s insisted for various reasons (their software, their interpretation of relevant legislation) that stakeholders still had to apply for an extension for submission to their Board.

Please see attached the Government Gazette 43278 No.501 dated 5 May 2020, confirming the extension of the submission date - issued by Minister Nzimande.

The Minister goes to great lengths to indicate the appropriate legislative jurisdiction of the extension.

Therefore - whether an SDF has or has not applied for an extension - the extension has been gazetted.

If SETAs have problems with their software, then that is for them to sort out.
