The Department of Planning, Monitoring and Evaluation (DPME) hereby invites comments on the draft Integrated Planning Framework Bill, 2018.


The imperative of institutionalising planning in Government has been fully recognised, and work is currently underway, led by the DPME to ensure that it finds expression in how Government substantially improves on how it functions more optimally. This process has intensified, more particularly, since the adoption in 2012 of the National Development Plan: Vision 2030 (NDP) which represents the apex plan and policy implementation framework across the whole of Government and the country.

In July 2014, through Proclamation 47, the DPME was established. DPME was created to introduce a renewal system for the three functions of Planning, Monitoring and Evaluation. However, its establishment did not yield the necessary strategic clarity on the new role of DPME. The Draft Integrated Planning Framework Bill, 2018 was developed and aims to provide the necessary strategic clarity.

The entire process is premised on the urgent need to improve the impact, delivery and implementation of Government's transformation and development policies and programmes. This will be achieved through the more effective coordination and integration of the planning powers and functions that the constitution assigns to all three spheres of Government.

Experience and practice to date have shown that the disparate and diffused nature of planning has resulted in a complex plethora of plans, legislation and structures. This fragmented planning landscape has led to sub-optimal outcomes and asymmetrical impacts of Government policies and programmes and sub optimal returns on the resources allocated to them.

Access to Draft Integrated Planning framework Bill, 2018 and submission of public comments.

The closing date for comments is ​8 May 2018. Further opportunity for comment will be through the parliamentary process estimated to be around July 2018.
