  • SA govt’s ‘people first’ portal

    first_img2 August 2004The government has launched phase one of its “people first” Internet gateway, giving individuals, organisations and foreigners a single entry point to government services and information, organised according to user needs rather than government structures.The new e-government gateway – www.gov.za – offers visitors two main paths.The information portal – www.info.gov.za – carries comprehensive, updating information on government contacts, departments, events and projects, as well the latest government speeches, statements, notices, tenders and consultative documents. National, provincial and local government links are easily accessible, along with information on the country and frequently asked questions on issues ranging from business to travel and tourism.The services portal – www.services.gov.za – breaks down into services for individuals, services for organisations, and services for citizens from other countries.In each case, services are organised intuitively, according to user need rather than place within a bureaucratic structure. The visitor, in other words, needs no knowledge of which section of which department offers a particular service – all he or she needs to know is what he or she wants from the government.Information on services for South Africans, for example, is organised according to “life events” – giving birth, a place to live, the world of work, relationships and sexuality, dealing with the law, and so on.Not just via the InternetThe gateway project will be extended to South Africans living in poorer or more remote areas via public information terminals in post offices and the government’s expanding network of multi-purpose community centres (MPCCs) countrywide.Other channels for government services will include ATMs and Uthingo outlets, and public servants will be trained to help people access these channels.During the first phase of the gateway, citizens will be assisted by specially trained community development workers at nine selected MPCCs and 55 postal facilities. Forty community development workers have so far been trained to carry out the programme in Gauteng.Public Service and Administration Minister Geraldine Fraser-Moleketi has called on people to comment on the gateway “so that we can upgrade it to become more user-friendly where necessary”.Way forward for e-government in SAIn its next phase, the e-government gateway will move from offering information on services – what services there are, who qualifies for them, where and how to access them – to enabling users to make online transactions.Services in high demand – such as pension payouts, payment of taxes, housing subsidies and birth and death registrations – will be the first to be “e-enabled”, with the Centre for Public Service Innovation (CPSI) predicting that this “basic access level” of e-government will be in operation some time in 2006 or 2007.The subsequent, “intermediate level” of e-government will see more services becoming available over the Internet, including the ability to transact with government, with the focus on self-service and empowerment.According to the CPSI, a later, “advanced” level of e-government will see more complex transactions – such as applying for an ID book or passport – taking place online, as well as easier access to small business and educational resources.Between 2005 and 2008, the CPSI says, e-government should become available via mobile services and should include the ability to transact with government, with new technology, including communication using electricity power lines, playing an important role at this level.South Africa’s e-government strategy is led by the CPSI in partnership with the Department of Public Service and Administration and the State Information Technology Agency.In Accenture’s recently released fifth annual global e-government survey, South Africa took last place of the 22 countries listed.Herman Manson of Mediatoolbox notes, however, that South Africa “was the only African country and one of only several developing economies researched, and should see its inclusion in the survey as a commendation of what have been achieved to date”.SouthAfrica.info reporterlast_img read more

  • Bins locked tight waiting for prices to rise

    first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Numerous producers who in recent years had completed corn and soybean harvest by the end of October found their work days stretched late into November. Many continue to be amazed at the huge corn yields of this past growing season. While not everyone had record corn yields this fall, it was a common occurrence across Ohio. It would appear that that were more record corn yields than record soybean yields. Rainfall at my house in Lancaster was six inches last month. No doubt many readers have similar totals.Grain facilities across the state had storage space stretched to the maximum this fall. While those rainy days of October and November delayed harvest, it did allow grain handlers to get caught up on drying corn this fall. Late November some facilities were open limited days as they wanted to be full at the end of harvest. With basis levels already appreciating for corn and soybeans by the end of November, some producers will be anxious to move grain this month to core their grain bins. Looking ahead, declining temperatures suggest that winter is knocking at the door. Temperature forecasts into mid-December show low 30s for highs and teens for the lows. Numerous forecasts this fall have already suggested this winter will be a cold one, returning us to the temperature extremes we faintly remember, while hoping the extremes won’t be a trend for the future.USDA published their last weekly crop progress report for the 2017 growing season on Nov. 27. That report had the U.S. corn harvest progress at 95% while Ohio’s corn harvest was 87%. The progress report of Nov. 20 had U.S. soybean harvest at 96%. Ohio’s soybean harvest was 95%. The Nov. 20 progress report was the last report of harvest activity for soybeans. USDA will resume their weekly crop progress reports on April 2, 2018. To see growing conditions for winter wheat you will need to observe state NASS bulletins. These weekly reports often report days suitable for field work as well as crop conditions.USDA will publish this month’s Supply and Demand Estimates on Dec. 12. Crop production and yields will not be published with the December report. The Jan. 12, 2018 USDA report will be the last production report for 2017 corn and soybeans. The January report will also detail grain stocks as of Dec. 1 in their Grain Stocks Report. This report breaks grain stocks into off-farm as well as on the farm. That has been the standard report process used by USDA and NASS for decades. With 17% less corn production expected from Brazil in coming months, all will be watching U.S. corn exports closely in the months ahead. While sales and shipments are behind those of last year, there are thoughts that exports could bump higher in the second half of the marketing year which is March through August 2018.Producer bins appear to be locked tight with the tight trading range corn had during October and November. March CBOT corn had a range of $3.49 to $3.69. Producers want to see the front number start with four to say the least. January CBOT soybeans seem stuck in a range of $9.70 to $10.10. Closes above $10.10 point to resistance levels at $10.30. Cash soybeans at $10 or higher will open the bin doors for producers needing cash in the next 60 days.last_img read more

  • Ohio Crop Progress – April 8, 2019

    first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest There was little precipitation across the State last week yet many fields remained wet according to Cheryl Turner, State Statistician, USDA NASS, Ohio Field Office. There were 1.6 days suitable for fieldwork in Ohio during the week ending April 7. Field equipment was readied and some top dressing of winter wheat occurred. There were reports of winter wheat remaining dormant in the northern half of the state while some stands greened up closer to the south. Pastures were slowly turning green and operators were beginning to assess grazing conditions. Manure pits and lagoons needed to be emptied but dry, warm weather was necessary before this could occur. Operators planted oats at a quick pace during the short time they were able to get in the fields.Click here to read the full reportlast_img read more
