Evaluating the Community Based Public Works Programme

S&T Senior Partner David Everatt summarises the complex set of services that S&T will be providing to the National Department of Public Works.

The Community Based Public Works Programme (CBPWP) is one of government’s leading anti-poverty programmes. It targets poor areas, and provides a wide range of services to communities, ranging from directly productive assets to community halls to roads.

The programme uses a labour intensive approach to maximise employment creation, and is underpinned by a participative approach. S&T partners have been involved in the CBPWP for many years and in different roles including evaluators, serving on the National Programme Management Team, policy development, and others.

S&T recently won a tender to provide a set of services to the National Department of Public Works. These include evaluating the CBPWP for the 1999/2000/2001 years; updating the Quality of Life instrument use by the Department; facilitating a policy review and producing a CBPWP Policy Guide; and editing the Programme Management System that governs the programme as a whole.
