Project Management Resource Groups (PMRGs) are partnership organisations (service providers) that are currently contracted to the Gauteng Department of Public Transport Roads and Works (PTRW) to act as agencies for fast tracking the delivery of infrastructure development and maintenance in Gauteng.
The PMRG strategy was first implemented in the last quarter of the 2004-5 financial year. The role of PMRGs is to assist the department to meet its objectives of fast-tracking the delivery and maintenance of infrastructure.
