Description

Introduction

Performance Management is a process which measures the implementation of the organisation‟s strategy. At Local Government level this has become an imperative, with economic development, transformation, governance, finance and service delivery being the critical elements in terms of Local Government Strategy. Performance Management provides the mechanism to measure whether targets to meet its strategic goals, set by the organisation and its employees, are met. National Government has also found it necessary to institutionalize and provide legislation on the Performance Management Process for Local Government. The Municipal Systems Act (MSA), 2000 requires municipalities to establish a performance management system. Further, the MSA and the Municipal Finance Management Act (MFMA) requires the Integrated Development Plan (IDP) to be aligned to the municipal budget and to be monitored for the performance of the budget against the IDP via the Service Delivery and the Budget Implementation Plan (SDBIP). In addition, Regulation 7 (1) of the Local Government: Municipal Planning and Performance Management Regulations, 2001 states that “A Municipality‟s Performance Management System entails a framework that describes and represents how the municipality‟s cycle and processes of performance planning, monitoring, measurement, review, reporting and improvement will be conducted, organised and managed, including determining the roles of the different role players.”
Performance Management, therefore, is not only relevant to the organisation as a whole, but also to the Individuals employed in the organization
