Has anyone done the calculations as to how points will be allocated for Senior and Middle Management representation as well as for the Skills Development element i.r.o. the Rand value spent and number of employees trained? The formula states that each black race group (male and female) is summed as a percentage of the compliance target and then divided by 6 to get an average percentage score. This value is then multiplied by the relevant weighting to calculate the points allocation. In the case of a business that has 100% African Male repesentation (with no Coloured or Indian representation and no black females) the 100% becomes 16.67% which results in a much lower score. Is it possible that the drafters of the revised codes intended to shoot themselves in the foot?

It is strange - I am formula-fatigued. But I suspect that your analysis is right. If you take a look at the EE calculations you'll see a brilliant typo. On page 25 they say that this stupid formula is for paragraphs 2.3 and 2.4, yet on page 26 the formula is now for all the categories under EE.

I haven't bothered to tell the DTI that their formulas are wrong - I just reminded them what a bunch of idiots they really are.
