The management of the SACAA has been structured along three core responsibility levels; the Strategic Management level that constitutes the Executive Management, the Project Management level that, together with the Executive Management, constitutes Senior Management and the Operational level that is organised according to technical departments.
The key role of the Executive is the strategic leadership of the organisation and the co-ordination of policy formulation. The Executive's function is to develop and maintain positive links with the industry and to co-ordinate the international relations of the SACAA with organisations such as SADC, ICAO, AFCAC, and other CAAs.
The Project Management level co-ordinates the technical activities of the key areas of oversight, being that of Accident and Incident Investigation, Aviation Infrastructure, Aviation Safety Operations and Aviation Security.
The technical departments report to the areas of oversight relevant to their specific activities. This means that depending on the activity, a technical department may report to a different oversight area. Within each area of oversight, the key responsibilities are to set, monitor and enforce standards, as well as to promote safety.
Support departments include Legal and Aviation Compliance, Internal Audit, Finance, Human Resources and Corporate Services. These departments are key to ensure the efficient functioning of the organisation and to ensure that the purpose of the organisation is fulfilled.
