Governance Index Implementation Plan

Abstract

The HSRC seeks to develop a Good Governance Index for South Africa that would operate as a policy monitoring instrument and a tool for generating evidence in support of improved management practices as well as strengthened internal monitoring and self-evaluation capacity. The vision is to take a whole-of-society approach that incorporates the state, the government, the private sector and civil society with the potential aim of initiating joint/mutual assessment of key governance indicators in each sector. The vision is ambitious and in order to ensure the development of a sustainable Index, the DGSD is proposing a three phase Index Elaboration process using identified seed funding from the HSRC to begin the first phase.
