NAMACO Chairperson, Commissioner Tendai Bare, this week confirmed to The Zimbabwean that the document was finalised and would be discussed this Friday.

In 2009, due to the cash crisis facing the Government of National Unity, a PPPs Committee was set up under the Chairmanship of NAMACO. The purpose of the committee was to leverage resources from the private sector for human capital development.

As a follow up, in July, 2009, NAMACO then hosted the inaugural meeting on PPPs and then in March, 2010, the Prime Minister, Morgan Tsvangirai, officially launched PPPs in higher and tertiary education.

"Subsequent meetings with key stakeholders indicated the lack of PPPs Operational Guidelines which will guide these partnerships," Commissioner Bare confirmed.

She said a high level meeting would, therefore, be held by all stakeholders in Harare tomorrow to thrash out issues that had been raised in the document.

The document has a survey in the PPPs sector and includes the current status in all higher and tertiary education institutions in Zimbabwe. Bare said at the end of the meeting stakeholders would produce a "final document" with operational guidelines for human resources development and training at all higher and tertiary education institutions.
