Project Selection Handbook For Department Of Education: Limpopo Province
AbstractOver the past decade, South Africa has experienced a rising pace of economic and social development which has facilitated the expansion of the basic social programs, especially in health and education. The education sector has been given a high priority by the National and Provincial authorities in order to eradicate illiteracy and to step up the scope and standard of education in public schools. As such, capital appraisal of the potential projects carried out by the department is now the focus of increasing attention. As a part of the continuous effort by the Limpopo Provincial Government to improve the quality of public infrastructure delivery by its departments, this handbook focuses on the process of capital project selection by the Department of Education (DOE). The objective of this handbook is to assist the decision-makers at the DOE in the selection of capital projects for construction and for rehabilitation, using a ranking system being developed as an extension of cost-effectiveness and cost-utility analysis. The handbook shows that the overall effectiveness of budget spending can be maximized when the funds are allocated for school construction and/or rehabilitation according to a priority index.
