Johannesburg - Public Service Minister Lindiwe Sisulu plans to approach Cabinet over the low compliance rate for performance evaluations of the heads of national and provincial departments, the Business Day reported on Tuesday.

"I will be approaching Cabinet with a plan to ensure that all qualifying directors general and heads of department are evaluated," she said on Monday in response to questions by the Democratic Alliance.

"We are acutely aware of the low levels of compliance with regard to the evaluation..."

Evaluations for the 2011/2012 year was still in progress and were due to be concluded by July 31. She said one national director-general and 11 provincial heads of departments had been evaluated.

This represented 3% of the 31 national directors-general who qualified for evaluation, and 16% of the 49 heads of departments.

The Public Service performance management policy provides for a five point rating scale when conducting performance evaluations for senior managers, directors-general and heads of department.
