KDI Report - Impact Study of the DSAC Funded BASA Supporting Grant Programme.-1 The Department of Sports, Arts and Culture (DSAC) has had a strategic partnership with Business and Arts South Africa (BASA), a non-profit company (NPC) to support the arts sector, specifically in relation to the DSAC funded BASA Supporting Grant programmes. DAC (2017) proposes that entities funded by the Department, such as BASA, be registered as a NPC rather than public entities to reduce compliance requirements of the Public Finance Management Act. The University of KwaZulu-Natal (UKZN) has been commissioned to conduct an impact study of DSAC’s funding to BASA to support the arts sector for the past six years. The results are intended to inform future decisions (including policy formulation and revision as well as activities and projects to fund) relating to the DSAC’s support of the arts sector.
