VISION
  • The department of Public Works (DPW) is
    committed to facilitating delivery by other
    departments by providing accommodation and

    transformation.

MISSION
  • The DPW aims to promote the governments
    objectives of economic development, good
    governance and rising living standards and
    prosperity by providing and managing the
    accommodation, housing, land and infrastructure
    needs of national departments, by promoting the
    Expanded Public Works (EPWP) and by encouraging
    the transformation of the construction and
    property industries.

Our core business

  • Custodian and regulator of states fixed assets
  • Logistic arm for national state events
  • Co-ordinate the EPWP
  • Manage and regulate the construction and property
    industries

Highlights from MTBPS
  • Increase in the local government share of Revenue
    from R17.5 Billion in the current year to R33.6
    Billion in the 08/09 financial year.
  • R500 Million increase to the MIG (EPWP
    possibilities)
  • Increase in roll out of basic service and
    infrastructure, fund job creation and promote
    sound governance

MTBPS cont
  • R31 Billion for provincial infrastructure
    including schools, clinics and hospitals
  • R20 Billion investment in the built environment
    including Housing, water schemes, public
    transport and community facilities
  • R7 Billion for courts, police services and
    improved access to judicial services
  • R8 Billion for public administration, including
    government accommodation

9
MTBPS implications
  • MTBPS confirms upward trend of public sector
    investment in capital formation to accelerate
    economic growth
  • Capex expenditure plans will amount to R111
    Billion in 06/07 and rising to R136 Billion in
    08/09
  • Expansion in Job creation exist especially when
    Labour intensive methods are used
  • Two key concerns to be noted namely, inflationary
    pressures and industry capacity to absorb this
    expenditure

10
MTBPS implications /2
  • Inflationary pressures will impact on the Capex
    programmes
  • Capacity constraints include the following
  • Shortage of skills in the industry
  • Capacity of government agencies to plan and
    manage the projected expenditure
  • Possible shortage of materials
  • Cost escalation as a result of increased demand

11
Challenges
12
Challenges
  • Capacity to spend within a public accountability
    framework by the state
  • Skills shortage and training implications
  • Early identification of projects and planning is
    key
  • Early warning systems to detect under-expenditure
    for timely interventions (ie.IDIP)

13
Challenges/cont.
  • Effective communication with the industry to
    mitigate shocks and price escalation
  • Proposal for a medium term infrastructure plan, a
    country plan, alongside the MTEF

14
Medium term infrastructure Plan
  • Will improve planning
  • Will encourage the industry to invest
    appropriately and to build capacity in line with
    the projected CAPEX investment
  • Will enable the country to develop a skills plan
    to match the projected demand
  • It could strengthen the partnership between
    government and the private sector

15
DPW initiatives
  • Service delivery improvement plan (SDIP)is being
    implemented in the department
  • Learnerships are being implemented in partnership
    with the CETA and other SETAs
  • Training of the unemployed is a key to the EPWP
  • Infrastructure Delivery Improvement Programme
    being implemented in partnership with Treasury to
    assist provinces to delivery infrastructure
  • An incubator programme is in place to assist
    SMMEs to emerge
  • Budget devolution to client departments
