Die toepassing van die proses van geïntegreerde ontwikkelingsbeplanning deur kategorie B plaaslike owerhede

Els, Christoffel Gerhardus January 2004 (has links)
Samevattende oorsig: In hierdie skripsie, is 'n studie onderneem ten opsigte van die Geïntegreerde Ontwikkelingsbeplanningsproses, wat die proses van beplanning en die toepassing van hierdie beplanningsresultate ten opsigte van twee klein B-munisipaliteite in die Wes-Kaap Provinsie insluit. Die skripsie bestaan uit sewe hoofstukke en is gebaseer op die veronderstelling dat die beplanningsproses van so 'n tegniese aard is dat kleiner owerhede nie in staat is om die proses na behore te kan bestuur nie. Dit gaan verder van die onderstelling uit dat die implementeeringskapasiteit by kleiner owerhede ontbreek om dievoorsiene uitkomste na behore te realiseer. Die primêre doelwitte van die navorsing sluit die volgende in: 'n basiese oorsig van openbare bestuur, die rolle en funksies van funksionarisse binne hierdie omgewing en die veranderende aard van openbare bestuur. Die proses van geïntegreerde ontwikkelingsbeplanning binne plaaslike regering word bestudeer met 'n volledige proses toeligting. Die noodsaaklikheid van beplanning en prestasiebestuur word bevestig tesame met die uitdagings en probleme wat die nuwe benadering bring aan klein plaaslike owerhede. 'n Finale waardebepaling rond die studie af. Die studie bestaan uit bronnavorsing om die veranderende aard van openbare bestuur toe te lig tesame met die werklike aard van die beplanningsproses soos vereis binne relevante wetgewing. Die impak van hierdie vereistes op klein plaaslike owerhede in die Wes-Kaap word ontleed aan die hand van twee geïntegreerde ontwikkelingsplanne soos deur die skrywer hiervan gefasiliteer by dié owerhede. Die gevolgtrekkings gemaak uit hierdie studie word dan ook aangedui met 'n aanbeveling oor die mees sinvolle inkrementele benadering ten opsigte van ontwikkeling as proses en die deelname van rolspelers daarbinne.

Non-payment of municipal rates and service charges with reference to the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan municipality

Ngxongo, Malusi January 2003 (has links)
The local government sphere is comprised of municipalities whose functions include the provision of consumer services. A substantial portion of municipal revenue, which is also used for service provision, is derived from rates and service charges. Through the billing process, the municipality stipulates the amount due to be paid by each account holder. In the case of rates and consumer tariffs, this usually occurs on a monthly basis. Towards the end of 2002, overdue rates and service charges in the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan Municipality amounted to over R800 million. In spite of various attempts undertaken by the municipality to collect overdue amounts, some residents are struggling to pay. Various reasons have been advanced for this scenario. However non-payment of rates and service charges has a negative impact on municipal budget and service delivery. Probably, if alternatives to the current credit control and revenue collection processes could be found, non-payment of rates and service charges could be eliminated.

A study of recruitment and selection policies with specific reference to the Sundays River Valley Municipality

Singanto, Nkosiyabo King January 2002 (has links)
In this dissertation, a study is undertaken of recruitment and selection policies with specific reference to the Sundays River Valley Municipality. The dissertation comprises of six chapters. The study is based on the assumptions that the Sundays River Valley Municipality does not have adequate recruitment and selection policies in place and that no clear division of duties has been made between councillors and officials with respect to the employment processes. Another assumption is that with better recruitment and selection policies in place, the Sundays River Valley Municipality will attract the best possible candidates for posts and better service delivery to communities. Further, this study is based on the assumption that in order for councillors and officials to be able to execute their duties effectively and efficiently and meet the requirements of the laws governing local government, they need to be knowledgeable and possess special skills and expertise. The primary objectives of the research included, inter alia, an investigation into theoretical processes of recruitment and selection policies with specific reference to the Sundays River Valley Municipality and motivation why the municipality needs to adopt formal guidelines to guide its recruitment and selection processes. This was followed by the constitutional and legislative measures affecting local government. The empirical survey and the research methodology are described as well as the interpretation of the research findings. This is followed by an explanation of the survey questionnaire used for the accumulation of data needed for the analysis. The research findings of the empirical survey were statistically analysed and reported. Finally, a number of conclusions are presented that were arrived at during the study, followed by specific recommendations. These are based on the findings of the empirical survey in order for Sundays River Valley Municipality councillors and officials to adopt formal guidelines to guide its recruitment and selection processes.

Nkayitshana, Zweledinga January 2003 (has links)
In this mini-dissertation, a study is undertaken for an investigation into the Executive Mayoral System with reference to the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan Municipality. The mini-dissertation comprises of five chapters. The study is based on the assumption that the introduction of an executive mayoral system will enhance the decision-making and policy-making processes at the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan Municipality. This is also based on the assumption that all local authorities and the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan Municipality in particular are faced with challenges of developmental local government. The Executive Mayoral System, therefore, is expected to provide possible solutions and avenues to promote and improve socio-economic development and service delivery to strengthen the local tax base. Another challenging aspect is the capacity building for the staff members of the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan Municipality especially the Executive Mayor who has all the powers vested in him. The main objectives of the research include, inter alia, to provide a brief theoretical background explanation regarding the reasons for the existence of local authorities and restructuring of local government in South Africa. To investigate and report on the implementation of the new mandate for local government with reference to the Executive Mayoral System at the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan Municipality. To investigate whether the Executive Mayoral System at the NMMM will contribute towards efficient and effective service delivery. This will be followed by the impact of the Metropole to promote and encourage community involvement on all the programmes of the municipality. This investigation will ensure that the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan Municipality provides conducive environment for socio-economic development and achieve the national economic strategy under Growth, Employment and Redistribution (GEAR) policy. To bring about experiences from other countries and learn from those experiences based on their approach to the Executive Mayoral System. An overview of the legislative framework and an explanation of selected policies for the Executive Mayoral System are made. Finally, a number of conclusions that were arrived during the study, followed by various recommendations are made. These are based on the qualitative research analysis in order to come up with solutions of ensuring sustainable service delivery with the Executive Mayoral System.

An analysis of the policy-making process in the Department of Labour with specific reference to the Employment Equity Act, (Act 55 of 1998)

Matshikwe, Lungile Easter January 2004 (has links)
The research problem in this study was to analyse how the new constitutional, legal and political arrangements have influenced public policy-making in the department of labour with specific reference to the Employment Equity Act. To achieve this objective a theory for analysing policy–making process was presented. Corporatist theory is based on the following assumptions: Public policy is shaped by interaction between the state and interest groups. The state licences behaviour of interested organizations by attributing public status to them Policy-making is based on interest groups bargaining across a broad range of issues. The groups are functionally interdependent to enhance social stability. The groups use consensus in making decisions. Decision-making is centralised, it is done by leaders. The groups are bureaucratic in organization. The groups must be recorgnised by the state so that they can be allowed representation. The research questions that arise are: (1) Who sets the agenda for policy formulation? (2) How is the policy formulated? (3) how are the decisions taken? (4) How is the policy implemented? (5) How is the policy monitored? The objective of this study analyse how constitutional, legal and political changes have influenced public policy formulation in the Department of Labour with specific reference to the Employment Equity Act. Policy–making processes in the South African arena and factors that led to the promulgation of Employment Equity Act were discussed. This study was a qualitative design. Purposive sampling was used in the selection of five participants who were interviewed. All interviews were transcribed verbatim. Data was analysed as described by Rubin and Rubin (1995:260) The result negated some of the assumptions of corporatist theory and others concurred with the theory. The findings of the study revealed that policy formulation in the Department of Labour is as a result of constitutional, and international conventions obligations. The findings further revealed that policy-information is institutionalised and there are competing interests due to divergent ideological orientations, different social backgrounds; racial differences; different; political beliefs; different class background; different historical backgrounds, and gender differences. (v) The formulation of the act was also characterised by advocacy, adversarism, stereotyping, alliances and consensus. These organisations. were bureaucratic and decisions were centralised. This study recommended a theory and the theory postulates that “public policy is the product of the social, economic, political, cultural, technolergical, and natural conditions of a given society in a particular epoch or period in the historical development of the particular nation or society and is influenced by dominant national and international forces and these influences may be cultural, economically, social, politically, technological, and type and system of government.

New Public Management och frivårdsinspektören

Porsaeus, Mattias January 2013 (has links)
Med termen New Public Management, NPM, vill samhällsvetenskapliga forskare beskriva den våg av organisationsförändringar inom offentlig förvaltning som svept över västvärlden de senaste cirka 30 åren. Den här uppsatsen undersöker hur frivårdsinspektörer inom den svenska kriminalvården upplever sin arbetssituation utifrån förekomsten av NPM-principer. Fem frivårdsinspektörer intervjuades utifrån tre temata som är kopplade till NPM - mål, kontroll och utvärdering. Undersökningen visar att verksamheten tycks ha förändrats påtagligt under den tid intervjupersonerna arbetet inom kriminalvården och att dessa förändringar kan kopplas till uppkomsten av NPM. Delar av arbetets organisering beskrevs som positiv för såväl kriminalvårdens anställda som för dess klienter. Kritik framfördes dock gällande hur verksamhetens måluppfyllnad mättes. Respondenterna menade att detta skedde på ett missvisande sätt och att det kvalitativa, klientnära arbetet sällan uppmärksammades eller utvärderades.

Integrating new values into Mongolian public management

Badarch, Kherlen January 2013 (has links)
This dissertation explores the socio-cultural and institutional environment of the public sector organizations of Mongolia that have strong influence on current public administration reform results. This study applies the Cultural theory and Value theory. The strong hierarchy favoring rule-bounded behavior and collectivism, fatalism accepting an authority as inevitable and uncontrollable, and individualism wishing to have control over own actions are the types of culture common in Mongolian public sector organizations. Accordingly, Mongolian public sector employees transcending their selfish interests, emphasize the well-being of others, protection of order, harmony in relations, life safety and stability. Then self-direction values with emphases on independent thought and action, and creativity are important for them. This socio-cultural context has great implication for work behavior of public employees, for their action to implement the reform policies in government organizations. Thus, the institutional leadership, which produces and protects values, becomes essential for introducing changes in the existing intuitional environment. / Die vorliegende Arbeit untersucht das sozio-kulturelle und institutionelle Umfeld der Organisationen des öffentlichen Sektors in der Mongolei, das signifikante Einflüsse auf die aktuellen Reformbemühungen in der öffentlichen Verwaltung hat. Die Studie stützt sich auf die Kultur- und Werttheorie. Die regelkonforme Verhaltensweise, Gemeinschaftsfavorisierende strenge Hierarchie, die fatalistische Annahme einer Autorität als unvermeidlich und unkontrollierbar sowie ein auf möglichst eigenständige Entscheidung und Meinungsbildung angestrebter Individualismus sind die weitverbreiteten kulturellen Verhaltensformen bei den Organisationen des öffentlichen Sektors der Mongolei. Dementsprechend streben die Beschäftigten des öffentlichen Dienstes uneigennützig das Wohlergehen der Bevölkerung, die Einhaltung der öffentlichen Regeln, die einvernehmlichen Beziehungen der Menschen zueinander sowie die Sicherheit und Nachhaltigkeit des Lebens an. Bestimmte Wertvorstellungen zur Selbstbestimmung, wie persönliche Geisteshaltung, eigenständiges Handeln sowie Kreativität sind für sie sehr wichtig. Dieser sozio- kulturelle Kontext hat große Auswirkungen auf das Arbeitsverhalten und auf die Aktivitäten der Beschäftigten des öffentlichen Dienstes zur Umsetzung von Reformen in der öffentlichen Verwaltung. Daher ist eine institutionelle Führung als Förderer und Beschützer von Wertesystemen bei der Umsetzung von Reformen in den hiesigen Institutionen unerlässlich.
