|Detailed description of the project|
The overall objective of the e-Justice programme is to ensure better access to and a more effective justice system for all South Africans in particular the poorest and remote populations and, beyond that, to create safer living conditions and a better business environment. The purpose of the programme is to reform and modernise the administration and delivery of Justice through re-engineering work processes, use of enabling technology, strengthening strategic planning and management capacity, organisational development and human resource interventions.
The objective of this evaluation was to assess the relevance, impact, efficiency and effectiveness of the Programme against the expected results on the basis of indicators formulated in the logical framework of the Programme. The focus is on whether the programme succeeded in fulfilling its purpose of contributing towards transformation of the justice system in South Africa. Thus while an assessment of the actual project activities and approach was conducted emphasis was on the impact the EC Programme had on the capacity and reform of the relevant institution and the sustainability of the programme outcomes.
A Final Evaluation report was prepared covering the following issues: relevance of the programme including an assessment of the programme objectives and the problems to be solved; programme preparation and design including assessment of internal logic and coherence; efficiency in terms of activities and results; effectiveness in achieving project purpose; impact and sustainability after external support.
