Abstract

Projects within Soweto's Contractor Development Programme, which has been in operation since 1988, are evaluated in terms of certain project evaluation criteria. Parameters that may be used to measure the increase in employment and entrepreneurial opportunities generated by preferring certain technologies and construction practices over others are developed and evaluated. A project index that may be calculated by means of a simple formula is presented to evaluate both projects within a programme and the programme itself. This index may also be used to compare the effectiveness of different projects in meeting certain developmental objectives. The implications of the method of evaluation are discussed in terms of the Reconstruction and Development Programme and the NEF's proposed Public Works Programme, and its usefulness as a decisionmaking tool for implementing innovative technologies and evaluating current and historic initiatives is examined.

Projekte wat binne die bestek van die Soweto-kontrakteursontwikkelingsprogram sedert 1988 uitgevoer is, word in terme van bepaalde projekevalueringskriteria beoordeel. Parameters wat gebruik kan word om die toename in werkverskaffing en ondernemingsgeleenthede te bepaal wat geskep word deur bepaalde tegnologiee en konstruksiepraktyke bo ander te kies, word ontwikkel en geevalueer. 'n Projekindeks wat deur middel van 'n eenvoudige formule bereken word, word aangebied ten einde 'n projek binne 'n program, asook die program self, te evalueer. Die indeks kan ook benut word om die doeltreffendheid van verskeie projekte ten opsigte van die behaling van bepaalde ontwikkelingsdoelwitte te vergelyk. Die implikasies van die evalueringsmetode word in terme van die Heropbou- en Ontwikkelingsprogram asook die NEF se Openbare Werkeprogram bespreek, en die bruikbaarheid van die metode as 'n besluitnemingsmiddel om vindingryke tegnologiee te implementeer en om huidige en historiese inisiatiewe te evalueer, word ondersoek.
