The baseline study towards transformation of the property sector as well as the launch of the construction sector codes and charter are to be finalised to speed up the radical economic transformation agenda, Public Works Minister, Nathi Nhleko announced in his Budget Vote speech tabled in Parliament on Tuesday.
We will integrate all initiatives aimed at transforming procurement processes to be in line with the charter and focus on promoting skills development through the Built Environment Skills Pipeline Strategy to support the roll out of infrastructure delivery in the country, declared Nhleko.
Nhleko indicated that the Council for the Built Environment (CBE) will be hosting a Transformation Indaba on 29 August 2017 at the CSIR International Convention Centre in Gauteng to deal with challenges of the governance framework.
He acknowledged that skills shortage remains a challenge and expressed appreciation of the partnership that his department had established with Universities of Technologies and the private sector to address it.
A programme to place interns for work place training was implemented during the financial year under review, he said.
The professional councils and entities that have been established should strengthen and support us to deliver on our mandate, Nhleko emphasised.
He cited the CBE Act, Construction Industry Development Board(CIDB) Amendment and other pieces of legislation that have been passed over the years to professionalise the construction and built environment sector.
