Office of the Premier
Office of the Premier derives its mandate primarily from the Constitution, the
Public Service Act, the PFMA, policy directives and the overall mandate of government.
5th administration of the Gauteng Province takes office with a good sense of
what has been achieved over the past 20 years of democracy. However, it is
appreciated that there are things that government must implement to rapidly and
radically transform Gauteng.
this regard, the political imperatives and policy priorities of the Gauteng
Provincial Government for 2014 – 2019 were adopted at the Extended Exco
Lekgotla in June 2014 and were publicly communicated by the Premier during the
State of the Province Address delivered on 27 June 2014.
State of the Province Address outlined the programme of radical socio-economic
transformation for the next five to fifteen years (over the NDP horizon unto
2030) under 3 key themes and 10 pillars, as follows:
of state and governance
of the public service
of the economy
of human settlements and urban development
of public transport infrastructure
of Gauteng province
the lead in Africa’s new industrial revolution
across above 10 pillars are issues of Gender, Youth, Elderly, Military
Veterans and People with Disabilities.
support of the GPG priorities outlined above, the Office of the Premier must be
positioned and capacitated to ensure:
provision of leadership to the entire government and society;
the effective functioning of the entire provincial administration and
fast-tracking delivery of policy priorities of this term of office and implement
the NDP, Vision 2030;
term planning, policy coordination, monitoring and evaluation of government
performance on priorities;
and interface with communities and key sectors of society;
of strategic and administrative support to the Premier and Cabinet in
fulfilling the mandate, constitutional and legal obligations and realising the
policy priorities and political imperatives of the fifth administration;
Gender; Youth, Disability and the elderly in our programmes.
