Call for Expression of Interest: Aligning planning horizons and frameworks: Institutionalising long-term planning in Steve Tshwete Local Municipality tender 83366153.

The Governance Support Programme (GSP II) is a partnership programme agreed to between the Governments of South Africa and Germany. It is a technical cooperation programme co-steered at national level in a partnership between the Department of Cooperative Governance, the Department of Public Service and Administration, the National Treasury, the Department of Planning, Monitoring and Evaluation and the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ), the latter responsible for the implementation of the development contributions on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development and the United States Agency for International Development.

The GIZ GSP II is seeking to appoint a suitably qualified service provider to support the Steve Tshwete Local Municipality (STLM) in institutionalising a long-term planning approach and organisational configuration supported by the necessary frameworks and systems. This assignment intends to position STLM to effectively deliver on the Vision 2040 long-term planning framework that was developed in 2019. The scope of work will focus on supporting STLM in several areas to ensure that the required systems, processes and capabilities are in place to ensure the successful implementation of the long-term strategy.

The models, tools and approaches developed must be geared for upscaling and replication by other municipalities. All the activities must be underpinned by and in line with the envisaged implementation approach and mechanisms as outlined by STLM in the long-term strategy 2040 (copy of the document can be supplied on request).
