Review of the Expanded Public Works Programme in Gauteng, 2009 – 2014

Description

This evaluation was commissioned by the Gauteng provincial government as part of its overall midterm review process. The aim of this evaluation is to provide an overview and assessment of the impact of Gauteng’s Expanded Public Works Programme (EPWP) on the lives of its beneficiaries. This focuses on the second phase of the EPWP, which began in 2009, coincidentally at the same time as this term of office, which is the period under review. This evaluation considers the extent to which participation in the programme impacts on the income of the beneficiaries and their households during and after their participation in the programme, the extent to which EPWP beneficiaries are able to access employment or other income generating opportunities after the EPWP programme, the types and duration of employment that may have been accessed and the extent to which this access is as a result of the skills and experience they have obtained through the EPWP, and the extent to which EPWP beneficiaries have also benefitted from other government job creation or skills development initiatives.
