dc.description.abstract Reconstruction and development can at this point in time, and for the foreseeable future, justly be described as the main focus of the South African government. This focus directly influences the policy and programmes of public institutions charged with the provision of services. The SANDF, as a government organisation, must actively contribute to support the aims of the RDP. However, success with the development and implementation of the RDP can only be attained if all of those involved with the programmes have a positive attitude towards the programmes. The aim of this study was to determine what the RDP implies, which demands it imposes on organisations and specifically on the SANDF, which factors might influence the successful implementation of the RDP, what the attitudes of the employees are towards the RDP, and whether there is a difference in attitudes among the various groups. An attitude scale was compiled and the main changes which result from the implementation of the RDP, viz. affirmative action, integration, demobilisation and rationalisation were borne in mind with the compilation of the final questionnaire. The empirical investigation involved members of the four largest training units in North West Command, of which the largest concentration consists of integration forces. A stratified random sampling was drawn from this population, and their attitudes with regard to the constructs of the RDP questionnaire were measured with a Likert scale. The results of the empirical investigation indicate that the attitude of non-white members of the North West training units towards the implementation of the RDP differs from that of white members. White members were not only dissatisfied with the RDP, but also with affirmative action. The various units gender, rank and qualification and years-of-service categories showed a significant difference with regards to affirmative action. These results indicate that the SANDF must deal circumspectly with the transformation process and that affirmative action should be applied strategically. en
