MZANSI GOLDEN ECONOMY (MGE) OPEN CALL FOR 2021-2022

The Department of Sport, Arts and Culture announces a call for proposals for key MGE work streams once a year which are made available on the website with all relevant information.

The application period for this financial year will run from June 1 to June 25, 2021; for projects/programmes that will be executed between September 2021 and March 2022.

Application can ONLY be done online and can be accessed through www.eservices.gov.za.

The move from manual to electronic portal is to create a track and trace management system for all MGE Open Call applications. In the past applicants have raised concerns regarding the MGE Open Call application process that includes;

  1. loss and/or misplacement of applications,
  2. lack of communication, to keep the applicants frequently informed on the progress of their applications;
  3. long turnaround times;
  4. lack of traceability and monitoring of proposal in their life-cycle.

 

By automating the application process for funding the Department will be able to track, trace and monitor turnaround times thus speeding up the process. In addition, holdups can be identified earlier and all applicants’ SA Identity numbers can be verified through the e-services portal web service. The e-system enables Unstructured Supplementary Service Data (USSD) capabilities and will send updates notifications to applicants through emails and/or SMS.

The Applicant must have;

  • accessed the e-services portal on www.eservices.gov.za;
  • a valid email address;
  • a valid RSA ID;
  • a valid cellphone number.

 

e-SERVICES REGISTRATION AND LOG IN PROCESSES

An Applicant must register on the e-services portal. Once registered the Applicant will receive a One Time Pin (OTP) to their cellphone number in order to verify the user. If the Applicant has an existing profile the Applicant must log into the portal with his/her existing credentials. Once logged in, the Applicant can access the DSAC MGE Grant Management system which is listed under the e-services menu.

Guidelines for 2021/22 MGE Open Call are available on the website www.dac.gov.za

Applicants that require accessible free internet and Wi-Fi must visit their nearest community libraries. Library Directory per provinces; https://www.nlsa.ac.za/condgrant/
