Expanding Public Works Programme

Our extensive experience with the Expanded Public Works Programme (EPWP) enables us to provide tailored support to each client, ensuring that their policy development and stakeholder capacitation is undertaken in an effective manner. Supporting operational works, while ensuring that client needs are met, and job creation opportunities are generated, are fundamental principles for each project we commit to. Providing customisable cloud-based project management tools to monitor implementation and provide real-time feedback on project progress, we help clients to solve problems and overcome obstacles efficiently and effectively. A unique strategic approach that sees clients as collaborators, enables us to mobilise municipal structures, work closely with related stakeholders and ensure active participation throughout projects and programmes.
