The South African Cabinet has endorsed the implementation of the eDisclosure system in the Public Service from April 2014 in a move that propels the fight against corruption in the public service.
In its latest update the cabinet observed that the eDisclosure system comes to replace the manual system of submission, processing and verification of the disclosures. “eDisclosure is an electronic register to capture and manage financial disclosures of designated employees (SMS members) who are required to disclose their registrable interests to their relevant Executive Authority by 30 April of each year.”
“The e-Disclosure system is located on the homepage of the Department of Public Service and Administration website –www.dpsa.gov.za – and is linked to other relevant existing databases such as the Companies and Intellectual Property Commission, deeds registration offices and eNatis for verification and validation purposes.”
The system aims to strengthen accountability in line with government’s zero-tolerance of eliminate corruption.”
