On the 5th of May 2020 the Minister of Higher Education, Science and Technology issued a Government Gazette that extended the submission date of mandatory grant applications to Sunday, 31 May 2020.
The Grant Regulations regarding monies received by a SETA and related matters, dated 03 December 2012, No 35940, states in regulation 4(8) that the CHIETA Accounting Authority may grant an extension up to a maximum of one month from the date contemplated in sub-regulation (2) for late submission of a grant subject to a written request by an organisation. This, therefore, means that the CHIETA Accounting Authority may grant an extension until Tuesday, 30 June 2020.
It is against this background that we provide some guidelines to those organisations that may require an extension.
We request that organisations submit an extension request as stipulated below.
