We are responsible for delivering social infrastructure and social development programme management services on behalf of government. The social infrastructure programmes we deliver include public schools, clinics, community centres, government offices and these are predominantly in rural communities in the nine provinces of South Africa.

The organisation has distinct Business Units, each headed by an Executive Head reporting to the Chief Executive Officer. The IDT operates on a hybrid devolved organisational model. Regions account centrally to the Chief Executive Officer for strategic business and to the Executive: Regional Operations for operational matters. This hybrid model fosters innovation and flexibility in order to enhance operational efficiency and strategic unity at a corporate level.
