dc.description.abstract Government policies have been misinterpreted, misunderstood as well as been misused; this has compromised the building industry especially when it comes to the Black Economic Empowerment (BEE) and small – medium micro enterprises (SMMEs), policies within the construction industry. The Peoples Housing Process (PHP) is one of the various mechanisms used in the housing sector, by government in its endeavour to achieve the goals set in these policies. This study evaluated the PHP in relation to industry’s standards. The aim of the research was to determine the extend of damage in housing delivery construction practices caused by the PHP with insufficient construction management skills within the building industry as well as weighing such damages against the positive outcomes or the benefits achieved through this process. This study has discovered that although the People Housing Process can be used as a social mode to empower communities, it does not conform to the set building standards. The study further discovered that PHP compromises both the quality and cost of houses as well as delaying the housing delivery process. en
