The Department of Public Service and Administration (DPSA) runs the web platform which catalogues and provides links to existing open data sets on external websites but also hosts data on behalf of government departments and agencies. In November 2018 the portal had 409 datasets on subjects such as Community and Safety, Economy and Employment, Education, Training and Innovation, Environmental Sustainability and Resilience, Government Transparency, Healthcare for All, Human Settlements, Nation-building and Social Cohesion, Nation-state Building and South Africa in the Region and the World. The portal comes in three languages, English, IsiZulu and Afrikaans.

What if I can’t find a project on the database?

If you know of a project or initiative that is not on the database please contact with as much information as possible including contact details. We want to make the database as comprehensive as possible but we need the community’s help to do so.
