[Member note] Infrastructure Development Act amendment - Strategic Integrated Projects

Fasken partner Lara Bezuidenhoudt and senior associate Shadi Kekana share a note with FSACCI Members on the strategic integrated projects to be implemented under the Infrastructure Development Act:

'The Infrastructure Development Act 23 of 2014 (the “Infrastructure Development Act”) was promulgated and came into effect on 10 July 2014.

On 23 June 2020, President Cyril Ramaphosa hosted the Sustainable Infrastructure Development Symposium at which symposium the Minister of Public Works, Patricia De Lille, announced that 55 infrastructure projects across 6 sectors had been earmarked as strategic integrated projects (“Strategic Integrated Projects”) to be implemented under the Infrastructure Development Act. The Minister further announced that these qualifying Strategic Integrated Projects would be gazetted.

On the 24th of July 2020 the Minister of Public Works under and in terms of Government Notice No. 812 published the list of projects designated by the Presidential Infrastructure Coordinating Commission as Strategic Integrated Projects under the Infrastructure Development Act. The Strategic Integrated Projects are listed under the following headings:

  1. Strategic Integrated Project No 19: Water and Sanitation;
  2. Strategic Integrated Project No 20: Energy;
  3. Strategic Integrated Project No 21: Transport;
  4. Strategic Integrated Project No 22: Digital Infrastructure ;
  5. Strategic Integrated Project No 23: Agriculture and Agro-processing;
