Department of Public Works
A new Public Works White Paper is on the cards.
Delivering his budget vote speech in parliament, minister Thulas Nxesi explained that the proposed policy paper would review the mandate and role of his department.
A Public Works Bill would flow from the policy paper. The plan would be to table the bill in parliament in 2017/18.
The minister added that a key part of the review would involve addressing the “concurrent mandate of public works”.
A property management empowerment policy was also under construction.
The minister also pointed out that provincial customised performance indicators had been developed to evaluate performance and delivery throughout the department.
