The IDIP (Infrastructure Delivery Improvement Programme) is a South African National Treasury initiative designed to improve the quality, quantity and delivery time for which infrastructure can be provided by Government Departments, in order to reduce the backlogs created from the past, and in a hope that some of the Millennium Goals can actually be achieved. It is presently being rolled out in 9 South African Provinces, 4 of which are being implemented by ECI Africa. The paper being presented will look at the process followed through the IDIP cycle, which has predominantly focused on Health and Education infrastructure, and can also apply to the Water & Sanitation environment. It is hoped that the audience will understand some of the methodologies, philosophies and ideologies of IDIP in an attempt for similar processes to be adopted within their own Infrastructure delivery structures. The IDIP process is straight forward, easy to implement and enthuses high impacts to infrastructure delivery.
