Aim with the presentation

To enable a better understanding of the strategic direction of the LGTAS and to encourage other national sector departments to align their efforts and improve coordination

slide3

Local Government Turn Around Strategy

(LGTAS)

Acting on a request from Ms Sheila Hughes of LGTAS team, to provide a presentation on:

Outcome 9: A Responsive, Accountable, Effective and Efficient Local Government System

Why is the presentation on Outcome 9?

Most of the Service Delivery Intentions contained in LGTAS are now distilled into Outcome 9

DWA is a key delivery partner

slide4

Minister’s Delivery Agreement: Outcome 9

Summary of Problem Statement:

Local Government is a key part of South Africa’s (SA’s) reconstruction and development effort.

The aims of democratising SA society and growing our economy inclusively can only be realised through a Responsive, Accountable, Effective and Efficient Local Government System (Outcome 9) that is part of a Developmental State

slide5

Outcome 9: Root Causes

  • Root causes for some of the problems include:
  • Systemic Factors, i.e. linked to the model of local government
  • Policy and legislative factors
  • Political factors
  • Weaknesses in the accountability systems
  • Capacity and skills constraints
slide6

Outcome 9: Root causes and Outputs

  • Root causes for some of the problems (continued) include:
  • Weak intergovernmental support and oversight
  • Issues associated with the intergovernmental fiscal system
  • There are 7 outputs for outcome 9, they are:
  • Output 1: Implement a differentiated approach to municipal financing, planning and support
  • Output 2: Improving access to basic services
slide7

Outcome 9: Outputs continued

There are 7 outputs for outcome 9 (continued), they are:

Output 3: Implementation of the Community Work Programme (CWP)

Output 4: Actions supportive of the human settlement outcome

Output 5: Deepen democracy through a refined Ward Committee model

Output 6: Administrative and financial capability

Output 7: Single Window of Coordination

slide8

Outcome 9: Delivery Partners

  • National Departments will:
  • Liaise with their sector and better organise intergovernmental support, e.g. DWA working withtheir Regional Offices, Provinces
  • Work with Provincial Sector Departments andmunicipalities to implement and monitor theinterventions agreed upon
  • Annually report on the commitments made in the Integrated Development Plans (IDPs) towards theLGTAS. It therefore means identifying and collating the information and evidence tosubstantiate / verify progress reports.
slide9

Outcome 9: Delivery Partners continued

Just as for national delivery partners there are also specific roles allocated to provincial, local and other (SALGA, Business, Donors / Development Partners, Professional Bodies, Civic Formations and Traditional Leaders) delivery partners with the aim to assist CoGTA in attaining the outputs to the Delivery Agreement but they are not dealt with in this presentation

slide10

Outcome 9

The slides following will only cover outputs and activities and do not go into the details of the Delivery Agreement, such as targets and monitoring mechanisms, etc.

slide22

Way Forward

To move forward we need to address the following:

Are our current efforts / plans addressing the root causes identified in LGTAS?

Are our current efforts / plans aligned to the outcome, outputs and activities of the various Minister’s Delivery Agreements?

Are our current efforts / plans promoting improved coordination between national sector departments, the 3 spheres of government and their key partners?
