Communications Minister Dina Pule has invited the public to nominate people to serve on an “Evaluation Panel” which will evaluate the performance of the regulator’s chairperson and councilors. The evaluation panel will consist of seven people, one of which will be the chairperson.
“The members of the Evaluation Panel shall be appointed by the Minister in consultation with the National Assembly and will have the necessary skills, knowledge, qualification and experience in the ICT sector,” a notice in the Government Gazette stated.
This evaluation council is a result of the ICASA Act which requires the minister to establish a performance management system to monitor and evaluate the performance of the ICASA chairperson and councillors.
Nominations must be received within 30 days of the publication of the gazette (19 October 2012).
