Chapter 4.4 of the Sector Funding Policy requires national DSD, in consultation with provincial DSDs and sector role-players, to develop a Transformation Scorecard and a roll-out schedule.
The aim of this assignment is to:
- Develop a Transformation Scorecard to measure and monitor the extent to which NPOs and other entities align with the basic values and principles outlined in Section 195 of the Constitution;
- Develop a Roll-Out Schedule that provides a timetable for rolling out the Transformation Scorecard among NPOs and other entities operating within the social development sector in a manner that is equitable and reflects the relative social importance of the NPOs and entities involved.; and
- Develop accessible remedial intervention guidelines to guide the steps that the Department of Social Development needs to take should an NPO or entity fail to meet the transformation requirements. This includes a guide for use by the applicable Department regarding setting up a transformation plan for the relevant NPOs / entities to assist them to meet the transformation requirements that they previously failed to achieve.
- Finalise transformation tools and guidelines, by incorporating feedback from DSD and public consultations.
The Sector Funding Policy and its associated tools and guidelines are yet to be finalised and approved by DSD for implementation.
