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 Independent Development Trust is set to commence work to build and refurbish 13 different schools on sites across the Eastern Cape as part of the government’s Accelerated School Infrastructure Delivery Initiative (ASIDI). Tenders for the school projects were advertised last year and the evaluation is at an advanced stage, with some of the projects awaiting site hand over instruction from the clients — the provincial Department of Education, national Department of Basic Education and the Department of Public Works. The IDT is implementing the programme – which comprises a number of projects of various sizes in terms of scope of work and project value – on behalf of the government as part of the ASIDI programme, which was initiated by the government in an effort to eradicate the backlog in school infrastructure. Read more…
