On a day-to-day basis GCRO receives and responds to requests for information or analysis from government in all three spheres, local, provincial and national. Occasionally the requests are for more extensive support on key government initiatives, especially in provincial government. For the most part these are treated as additional to the normal project work-load of GCRO. Examples are listed under ad hoc support. In addition, GCRO sometimes builds a specific project around a request for support, in particular on larger policy or strategy processes where expertise from GCRO may contribute significantly. Examples over the years have included support to the Gauteng Provincial Government’s 50-priority wards programme or its Green Strategic Programme.
