Detailed description of project Back
South Africa is an economy in transition, seeking to address serious issues of economic and social cohesion. South African government departments (national, provincial and municipal), other government agencies and NGO’s are in the forefront of addressing these social and economic backlogs. They command immense resources from both the South African budget and support in the form of Official Development Assistance (ODA). However, these South African government departments face significant challenges and problems in their capacity, (notably lack of absorption capacity together with programme and project management skills and experience), to deliver programmes and projects that address the needs of South Africans.
The EU has sought to assist the South African government to address some of these challenges. In this context it has also supported the National Treasury to tackle the particular challenges associated with ODA management and the implementation of programmes and projects that are funded by South Africa, the EU and other donors. The proposed ODA-P attempts to resolve several strategic as well as operational issues.
The purpose of this contract is to provide technical assistance to the IDC Chief Directorate in National Treasury to meet its commitment for optimal utilization of ODA by complimenting the realization of development priorities of SA and the region. The IDC will further extend this technical support the three spheres of government: national, provincial and local. Technical support will be provided through:
