Govan Mbeki Awards 2014
The Department of Human Settlements is set to host the provincial Govan Mbeki Awards on the night of 27 May 2014 where the theme is '20 Years of Freedom'.
The ceremony will showcase and inculcate a culture of excellence in the provision of human settlements solutions in the province. The awards also present an opportunity to recognise our sector efforts by showcasing excellent accomplishments and milestones within the programmes that are outlined in the National Outcome 8 with an emphasis on the strategic objectives of the province; PSO 6: Developing integrated and sustainable human settlements.
Competition is encouraged between the various municipalities in the Province for the provision of good quality housing solutions. The assessment process and site visit to the projects submitted is scheduled to take place in early May 2014.
