  • CDW: CDW learnership still underway.
  • Skills development programmes: Dept of Labour has signed an MOU with Alexandra to the value± R23 million over a three year period. All urban nodes currently undertaking skills audits with a view to entering similar MOUs. In rural nodes 750 learner contractors trained in 2004 & SETA-FET (Further Education & Training) recruited 100 entrepreneur learnerships 2004 linked to EPWP.
  • EPWP: Was launched in all provinces with a focus on the nodes (Galeshewe, Khayelitsha and Mitchell’s Plain). Flagship EPWP projects being undertaken in all nodes.

PROGRESS …

  • M&E - Draft M&E Framework in place
  • - Nodal baselines in place
  • - Nodal profiles finalized
  • - Development of best practice book underway
  • Communication - Communication plans for the nodes are in place and are being operationalized in conjunction with dplg. Regular newsletters produced at nodal and national levels.
  • ICT - All nodes are being successfully prioritized for ICT infrastructure, such as cyber labs, public information terminals and community radio stations. Youth ICT project provide IT skills to nodes in rural areas- 40 youth. 3318 ICT learnerships were implemented in the nodes.

progress on urp resource targeting
PROGRESS ON URP RESOURCE TARGETING
  • In 2004/2005 R2.2 bn was allocated to the six municipalities with URP nodes, compared to R1.6 bn in 2003/04.
  • Of this, R 1.3bn was the Equitable Share.
  • Of this R1.3bn, ± R80 million was earmarked as a special allocation for the nodal programmes, to build local capacity and implement projects.
  • Various programmes have prioritized the nodes, i.e MIG ±R741 million to the 6 cities with urban nodes.
  • Of the MIG, at least R114million is directly allocated to the nodes.

5. CHALLENGES

  • Predictability in resource allocation remains a challenge. The principles of the financing protocol speak directly to this;
  • Inadequate project mngt & implementation capacity and capability at nodal level – project consolidate seeks to address this; and
  • Integrated planning between & across spheres of government; the IGR Framework Bill will begin to address this.

14
