August 26th, 2019, Published in Articles: PositionIT, Featured: PositionIT

Cabinet has approved an integrated service delivery model that will see the three spheres of government work together to accelerate the implementation of service delivery programmes to communities.

The District-Based Service Delivery Model is expected to ensure coherence and integration in planning, budgeting and the implementation of service delivery projects and programmes in all districts by all three spheres of government. Cabinet approved the model during its 21 August 2019 meeting in Cape Town.

The model is based on the intergovernmental relations framework which provides coordinated and integrated alignment of developmental priorities and objectives between the three spheres of government, and which is also meant to enhance other alignment plans like the IDPs.

Minister Jackson Mthembu briefs media on outcomes of the 22 August 2019 cabinet meeting.

Deputy president David Mabuza, ministers, premiers, MECs as well as executive and local mayors and their executive and mayoral committee members will all be part of the implementation of the model. The focus on districts aims to avoid working in silos.

President Cyril Ramaphosa presented the model at the first President’s Coordinating Council meeting of the sixth administration, where it was accepted by all provincial premiers. Ramaphosa is expected to visit projects in OR Tambo District in the Eastern Cape; Waterberg District in Limpopo and eThekwini Metropolitan Municipality in KwaZulu-Natal.
