  • The Ethics Institute of South Africa (EthicsSA) has released a booklet designed to help businesses understand the municipal procurement process, and what their rights are if they suspect irregularities.

    municipalhandbook

     The booklet aims to simplify the procurement procedures and to make businesses aware of the regulations that are intended to foster transparency and accountability in the process. If businesses know their rights they can hold municipalities accountable to follow the procedures correctly. Municipalities spend billions of rands every year in procuring products and services from companies both large and small. Many companies find themselves at a disadvantage because they do not fully understand the often-complex tender processes, or how to question what they see as irregularities in the awarding of tenders.

    The EthicsSA booklet provides a clear guide to each step in the procurement process, and how to raise questions.
