About Department of Public Service and Administration
The mission of the Department of Public Service and Administration (DPSA) is to establish norms and standards to ensure that the state machinery functions optimally, and that such norms and standards are adhered to; implement interventions to maintain a compliant and functioning public service; promote an ethical public service through programmes, systems, frameworks and structures that detect, prevent and combat corruption; and contribute towards improved public administration in Africa and internationally through dialogue and sharing of best practices.
The Department is required to facilitate and support efforts that seek to, among others, improve service delivery quality and access; human resource management and development; business processes; systems and accountability management; anti-corruption and integrity; and effective public participation.
Young innovators will work in teams with government digital ambassadors and industry mentors to develop ideas and prototypes for improving service delivery.
The Ignite Hackathon will take place on 28 - 30 September as part of the Service Delivery month (see build-up activities below) at the University of Johannesburg Kingsway Campus, Auckland Park.
The 2018 Theme: Youth Spark - Igniting Youth Action Towards Improved Service Delivery.
