When is Application Deadline?

Tell Me About Award:

The Department of Home Affairs, (DHA) as the custodian of the National Population Register (NPR) in the Republic of South Africa, has a mandate and purpose to ensure secure, efficient and accessible services and documents for citizens and lawful residents. This entails the systematic maintenance of the National Population Register (NPR) including the management of birth, marriage and death paper records as well as identity documents.

The Department has more than 350 million inactive and active paper records, and a decision was taken to prioritise the digitisation of birth, marriage and amendments records. The identified category of records date back from 1895 which necessitate care and reliable systems that will bear tolerance for digitisation purposes. Most of the inactive records are civil registration historical records multiplied in manuscript format and need urgent restoration, preservation and reconstruction.

As such the Department plans to convert all such related records through digitising hard copy records to electronic format, for easier handling and storage thereof. The project to digitize all of its civic records has been commissioned; the primary object of digitization of records will enable the optimum realisation of its core mandate and as such records will be easily accessed for service delivery purposes.

The secondary objective seeks to contribute to youth empowerment and enhancement of youth employability. The DHA therefore seeks to contribute to the employment creation goals and strategic priorities of the Presidential Youth Employment Initiative (PYEI) by acquiring unemployed youth on a fixed term contract basis to assist with the digitization of its civic records.
