The findings that will be the outcome of this study will provide a solid foundation for Government entities particularly Municipalities as well as the private investors seeking to enter the PPP market in South Africa. The findings will also give insights into the most critical success factors for engaging PPP projects in electricity distribution. Understanding both the perspective from the "funders" and "Municipality management" on what they view to be critical will ensure that a common understanding is sought for the successful implementation of public-private partnerships especially in financing Municipal infrastructure. The findings will also give rise to the interesting test being if the "size of the municipality" matters and if the perceptive from their management varies significantly.
With the outcome of this research, the researcher hopes to provide some answers, suggestions and insights on critical considerations that Municipal management and Government spheres have to focus on, in-order to ensure that the backlog identified in the National Development Plan (NDP) and the Municipality's own Integrated Development Plan (IDP) is addressed.
