A guideline for integrating community-based procurement in the operation & maintenance of basic services
Expanded Title:As municipalities are coming to terms with the scale of the operation and maintenance requirements of basic services, more municipalities are considering integrating community based procurement opportunities for the provision of operation and maintenance functions of basic water and sanitation services. While there is a willingness to integrate pro-poor strategies and improve operation and maintenance of basic services, the challenge in implementation is a guideline at local level to create an enabling environment for the integration, monitoring and support of community based-opportunities in operation and maintenance systems. This study “Integrating community based procurement opportunities in the operation and maintenance of basic services” was initiated in response to this challenge and is in line with the ASGISA call for “procurement and capacity building strategies for poverty alleviation in the context of basic infrastructure programmes”. Drawing on international experience the study investigated local approaches in the context of specific case study sites (Cape Town, Stellenbosch, eThekwini and Alfred Nzo DM) in order to develop a guideline. The key findings in the study relate to the following: • The rationale for community-based Procurement in O&M of basic services • Identifying O&M tasks and specifying community-based opportunities • Setting up local Monitoring and Support Structures • Facilitating Institutional Support for integrating community–based O&M approaches
