  8. Requirements for Province to achieve targets • Increased MIG Allocations • Secure funds to maintain infrastructure and replace ageing infrastructure to prevent of new backlogs • Increase WSA’s institutional capacity and outsource PMU non-core functions • Management of Professional Service Providers who design and manage projects (i.e. Escalations) • Partnerships between established and developing professionals and contractors to improve overall productivity • Leadership to ensure collaboration of sector partners

  9. Recommended Strategies • The current MIG MTEF (DORA) allocations for both water and sanitation are far below for the province to meet national target • There is an need to engage Provincial and National Treasuries to provide more funding. • The MIG formula should be needs than HH based • The Province and Municipalities should declare the bucket eradication programme as an emergency: • To urgently address the shortfall with funding institutions • To prioritize the bucket within their MIG allocation • To short-circuit some of the laborious pre-implementation process i.e. tedious SCM processes.
