Local Government Turn Around Strategy (LGTAS)
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
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
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
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
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
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.
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?
