Leveraging Services for Employment, Growth and Equity: Employment Through Government Procurement

2005
Research Report, Employment Growth & Development Initiative, Human Sciences Research Council

Government expenditure is a key lever for influencing the nature and pace of employment creation, especially in sectors where it is a provider or procurer of services. Therefore, the Leveraging Services Project for Employment, Growth and Equity reviewed the possibilities for creating jobs indirectly through procurement by government and state-owned enterprises, and directly through meeting basic needs for social development services and intensifying labour use in infrastructure programmes. Four background papers were prepared, including a review of government procurement practices and behaviour, the global context for social development programmes, a review of South Africa’s policy on social development programmes, and a review of the impact of government-generated employment. This paper provides an overview of the interim findings.
