The IDT is mandated to support all spheres of government with social infrastructure management and programme implementation. The IDT portfolio of programme is broadly categorised into social infrastructure programmes and social development programmes.
Social infrastructure programmes entail the provision and maintenance of infrastructure facilities that enable government to deliver social, basic and community services to its citizens. Social infrastructure projects include schools, Early Childhood Development Centres (ECDC), clinics, hospitals, courts, community halls, portable water and sanitation infrastructure, etc.
Social development programmes on the other hand, entail initiatives and development interventions that primarily facilitate job creation, poverty eradication, community enterprise support and community empowerment. The programmes under this portfolio include initiatives like Expanded Public Works Programme (EPWP) and Contractor Development Programme.
