The Department of Performance Monitoring and Evaluation (DPME), which is located with in the Presidency of the Republic of South Africa is tasked, among others, with the monitoring of management performance in all government departments. For this purpose it developed the Management Performance Monitoring Tool (MPAT).This tool measures department al compliance to regulated management practices as well as performance and innovation in this regard.
The tool sets specific compliance and performance standards against which departments assess them selves. These self-assessments are moderated by a panel of subject matter experts based on evidence provided by the departments in substantiating its self-assessment.
One of the key outcomes of the assessment process is the identification and documentation of good management practices.
