Amid reports of a number of board resignations from the State Information Technology Agency (SITA), the organisation this afternoon confirmed that acting CEO Femke Pienaar has tendered her resignation.

In a very brief statement, the agency said that the Minister for Public Service and Administration, Richard Baloyi, and Pienaar are still in discussions on the terms of the resignation to ensure a smooth handover.
"The appointment of a permanent CEO remains on track and an announcement in this regard will be made in due course," the statement says.
