The mission of the Independent Development Trust (IDT) is to manage and deliver integrated social infrastructure programmes on behalf of government on time, cost-effectively and through a people-centred approach.

The IDT is a schedule 2 state-owned entity that manages the implementation and delivery of critically needed social infrastructure and social development programmes on behalf of the South African government. The IDT reports to the Minister of Public Works, who is the executive authority and the shareholder representative. The IDT’s national office is located in Pretoria, and has provincial offices in the country’s nine provinces.

The IDT was established in 1990 and was allocated a grant of R2 billion by government to support education, housing, health services and business development projects in previously disadvantaged and mainly rural areas. After 1999, the IDT was reconfigured and listed as a schedule 2 programme implementation agency as prescribed by the Public Finance Management Act (PFMA) 1 of 1999. From 1999 to date, the organisation has delivered approximately R27,4 billion worth of social infrastructure and social development programmes across the country.
