The Gauteng Partnership Fund (GPF) is 100% owned by the Gauteng Department of Human Settlements. The vision of the GPF is to be a partner of choice in catalysing the funding and development of integrated and sustainable human settlements in Gauteng.
Its core mandate is to serve as the funding and implementing agent for integrated, sustainable human settlement developments in the Gauteng City Region and custodian of strategic provincial land and/or property transferred to GPF for effective immovable asset management and coordinated, efficient implementation of mega human settlement developments. The GPF offers innovative funding products designed to share project risk with the private sector.
More specifically, the GPF’s mandate comprises the following key roles/functions: fundraising and investment facilitation – use of public sector funding to leverage additional funding and facilitate capital flows into integrated, sustainable human settlements through the formation of strategic partnerships with local and international donors, development finance institutions and private sector partners; project preparation and funding packaging – to assess project readiness, coordinate and facilitate the process to close the project readiness gaps in collaboration with relevant stakeholders, and develop bankable feasibility studies and facilitate funding and investment in human settlement projects; project financing – to facilitate an equitable risk sharing and project financing model; and project implementation, coordination and oversight – to enable project management, monitoring and evaluation of the development of Mega Projects by developers and contractors.
