Improvements to City's Property Management Department will promote economic growth

The City of Cape Town today announced the appointment of Pricewaterhouse Coopers, an international firm of consultants, to effect essential business process improvements in its Property Management Department.



Councillor Simon Grindrod, Mayoral Committee Member for Economic, Social Development and Tourism said: "Business Process Improvement (BPI) is a systematic approach to help the City make significant changes in the way it does business. Over the last year, the City reduced the number of conveyancing backlogs.

"The release and management of City property is an essential tool to create jobs. It is, therefore, important that the time it takes to process property transactions is reduced to the minimum so that more jobs can be created. We will also be driving costs down in the process".

Last year the City employed external conveyancing practitioners to help clear the backlogs. The number of transactions processed has increased substantially, but there is still a lot of work that needs to be done.

Mansoor Mohamed, Executive Director for Economic, Social Development and Tourism said: "The City’s key goal of economic growth is a key driver for any business process. The processes will be redesigned to put the customer first. The improved processes will result in lower costs in the City, which will ultimately benefit the ratepayer. Enhancing the effectiveness of the City’s Property Management Department will speed up job creation and promote economic growth.

The release of industrial land in Atlantis earlier this year proved how effective land release is for job creation and economic growth. The full benefits of the improved business processes will be realised over the next six to twelve months. In the meantime, the Property Management Department will work at reducing the backlogs and processing the current workload."
