The County and City Management Association (CCMA) is the organisation through which senior managers in local government provide sectoral leadership across business and programme areas. The CCMA operates through a number of committees, each of which is concerned with a specific policy area and these committees interact with relevant Government Departments and Agencies on a structured basis.

While the CCMA works closely with Government Departments and other key stakeholders on key public service delivery issues, my Department has no function in relation to its internal operations and does not provide funding to it.
