Client: Department of Communications

Problem statement

A complete review of all the SA ICT policies was required by the Department of Communications (DOC). This was part of the process of developing the Green Paper for the ICT Policy Review panellists.

The solution approach

BMI-T, in collaboration with Ellipses Regulatory Solutions and Incyte Consulting, was commissioned to undertake a detailed review of the telecommunications sector. This included a historical review of all the relevant policies, regulations and legislation over the past 20 years. All aspects of the telecommunications environment and sector were reviewed and forward-looking recommendations made for key policy changes.

Outcomes achieved

Detailed research reports with key recommendations were submitted to the DOC and ICT Policy Review panellists. This contributed directly to the ICT Policy Review Green Paper subsequently gazetted.
