The Gauteng Partnership Fund, are aligned to both national and provincial strategic priorities and outcomes, and the Department of Local Government and Housing (DLGH) Strategic Plan. In keeping with the focus of the DLGH, the GPF supports Provincial Outcome 6, as a proactive contributor to the development of sustainable human settlements and quality of household life in Gauteng.
Within Outcome 6, the GPF supports the following provincial outputs:
- Accelerated delivery of housing opportunities
- More efficient land utilisation
- Improved property market
The Gauteng Partnership Fund envisages that in achieving its mandate, purpose, vision and mission outlined above, its overarching strategic goal is to increase and leverage and involvement of private sector funding for affordable housing in Gauteng. In order to realise this goal, the GPF seeks to enhance its visibility and credibility in the market through strategic collaborating with a well-informed stakeholder base (both internal and external stakeholders); play a catalytic role in shaping the affordable housing agenda in Gauteng, and provide timely and accurate performance information and data on all aspects of its work.
This enhanced recognition will be because of success in ensuring the facilitation and funding of affordable housing development in Gauteng, and building a self-sustaining and relevant business model, which enables the GPF to speak authoritatively on the issues facing the affordable housing segment of the market. This will require the GPF to ensure the optimised management of its own internal resources and processes and will necessitate deal flow and the creation of new revenue streams; and a focus on cost efficiencies and the consolidating of provincial resources to benefit from economies of scale.
It is realised that to achieve this lofty goal, the GPF must equally focus on effective and excellent management of its own internal processes and systems, and on attracting, retaining and developing the best possible resources, able to contribute meaningfully to the achievement of these stated goals.
In this light, the Strategic Objectives of the Gauteng Partnership Fund are:
- To enhance the visibility and maintain the credibility of the GPF.
- To ensure the optimized role of GPF’s funding in facilitation of sustainable human settlements programme in Gauteng.
- To ensure the facilitation of funding for housing developments.
- To maintain an efficient and effective operating model.
- To ensure optimized financial and managements systems and good governance.
- To ensure optimal use of GPF human capital.
