South Africa: Department Celebrates Africa Public Service Day
Source: Issued by: Western Cape Cultural Affairs and Sport
Source Date: Thursday, June 27, 2013
Focus: Knowledge Management in Government, Institution and HR Management
Country: South Africa
Created: Jun 27, 2013

The daily DCAS activities are already giving meaningful effect to this theme. Through the upcoming Municipal Sport Summit on 22 to 23 June 2013, DCAS ensures citizen participation in the development of sport strategies that will improve service delivery, address the needs of beneficiaries and strengthen stakeholder engagement.

The Consultative Workshop on Initiation on 30 May 2013 was an example of how DCAS strives to build public participation in important cultural activities, in this case by bringing stakeholders together to make traditional male initiation practices safer and healthier.

Through its campaign to combat fraud and corruption, DCAS promotes accountability, transparency and integrity. The DCAS service charter further upholds accountability by outlining targets and communicating details of service sites and mechanisms for redress.

The DCAS external website, Annual Performance Plan, Annual Report and Citizen’s Report ensure that citizens have access to information about the running of our core business and its plans, budget, performance and key personnel. The quarterly Thusong Mobile Centres in the various regions provide another opportunity to promote the DCAS activities and allow communities to enquire about our services.

By reaching out to communities, DCAS makes the Western Cape Government values on African Public Service Day a part of the way we do business in the Western Cape, better together.
