Register a Public Sector Project/Programme
Infrastructure South Africa (ISA) has established the Infrastructure Investment Project Appraisal and Approval Process for public sector-led and procured infrastructure projects under the current legal framework. This process uses the SIDS methodology as the foundation model for the project lifecycle process.
Step 1: Origination – requires the Sponsor to consider and authorize the proposed project/program submission and documentation required to ISA.
Step 2: Project Registration with ISA – requires the Sponsor to submit the proposed project/program to ISA for registration before detailed work commencing on appraising the Early Business Case development.
Performing the review Stages of the SIDS methodology is in the best interests of both ISA and the Sponsor, as it adds value and facilitates the early intervention at each project stage to ensure key issues such as meeting the project criteria, strategic fit, affordability, and stakeholder support are addressed before substantial resources are engaged in the development of detailed business cases. This approach addresses a previous historic weakness, where the appraisal authorities body/s were not involved until late in project preparation when it is often difficult to resolve fundamental issues.
