Purpose of the Organisational Performance Assist Module

Organisational Performance Assist facilitates the management of organisational performance on a monthly or quarterly basis. It is an electronic tool that can be tailored to address any organisations organisational performance management needs. This tool has been developed taking into account legislative requirements in South Africa and best practice experience. Multiple users can view and update the tool at any given time. There is no need to collect data from departments as each department is responsible and accountable for the updating of their own performance information.

The tool is called SDBIP Assist at local government level, APP Assist at provincial and national government level and Organisational Performance Assist in the private sector.
