DBSA strengthens partnerships with construction allies

04 March 2015

The Development Bank of Southern Africa (DBSA), through its Infrastructure Delivery division, has signed memorandums of agreement with the South African Federation of Civil Engineering Contractors (SAFCEC) and the Black Business Council Built Environment (BBCBE) to create and legitimise the partnerships among the parties.

These partnerships were aimed at establishing and formalising a collaborative framework to create efficient cost, time, quality and socioeconomic outputs of infrastructure delivery programmes in South Africa, as the parties shared a common interest in ensuring effective delivery of infrastructure in the country, with a particular focus on fostering skills development, job creation and contractor development.

Additionally, the parties would leverage on each other’s mandates to enhance efficiency and effectiveness in the delivery of infrastructure projects, thereby developing models designed to reduce contractor failures.

“We want to be a centre of excellence, which focuses on the delivery of infrastructure in South Africa and the rest of Africa by transforming the built environment sector,” DBSA Infrastructure Delivery group executive Sinazo Sibisi said.
