24 March 2011

The Deputy Minister in The Presidency responsible for Performance Monitoring, Evaluation, Ms Dina Pule, will tomorrow meet with the South African Local Government Executive Council (SALGA). This is the continuation of her tour of provinces which started on 9 March 2011.

As part of the visits, Deputy Minister Pule will meet with the Provincial Executive Council to:

  • Share the approach and the process to be followed in monitoring and evaluating performance
  • Communicate institutional arrangements in order to implement the performance monitoring and evaluation system effectively and emphasise government’s focus on the five key priority areas as identified by the President in his State of the Nation Address.

The first visit was in Mpumalanga Province on 9 March followed by KwaZulu Natal on 16 March 2011.
