Page 3 1. Background In terms of the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa, No. 108 of 1996, all state owned national and provincial immovable assets must be vested in the name of the national government, or one of the nine provinces. In terms of the Government Immovable Asset Management Act, No. 27 of 2007, (GIAMA), Custodian appointments are assigned by the Minister of Public Works to exercise the responsibilities associated with ownership on behalf of national government. These responsibilities include acquisition, management and operation, maintenance and disposals. The Department of Public Works (DPW) is therefore mandated as the custodian of immovable assets vested in the national government, which are not otherwise vested in the custodianship of other departments through legislation.
