  5. Introduction and Overview • A key issue is that the Departmental monitoring and reporting programme is weak and will be strengthened in the turn-around. • The lack of appropriate programme and project management capacity at the provinces and municipalities is a matter which clearly is reflected in performance and measurement of the outcomes. • A number of policy, planning, funding and implementation gaps have been identified including data collection and integrity, value for money, improved performance of the grants and subsidy instruments and steps taken to close the gaps. • Governance and compliance gaps will also be closed, improved and strengthened and this includes the entities until control of the Department and Minister. • The strengthening of policy responsiveness is also a matter for critical action and intervention including cooperative housing.
