A presentation delivered by Dr Li Pernegger (GTAC) and Dr Tracy Ledger Public Affairs Research Institute (PARI) on 22 April 2022 as part of GTAC’s weekly webinar series. NT: IGR with the support of GTAC commissioned PARI to conduct a Diagnostic Review of the capacity building system for local government. This review provides a first-time helicopter view of the overall local government capacity building system. This GTAC webinar presented the challenges identified in this system. This Diagnostic Review is part of a broader GTAC programme on behalf of the National Treasury (IGR) to address fragmented capacity building systems in local government whilst also aiming for better value for money for all of government.
