Further tightening of internal procurement processes aims to make things harder for extortionists <div>‘The City is proposing changes to its Supply Chain Management Policy to improve alignment with existing legislation and to further enhance tender process efficiency and transparency. Robust internal control interventions are proposed to reduce the impact of extortion on City projects. This includes placing any individuals assessed as high risk, who are connected to a specific tenderer, on the City’s Red List; and revoking awarded contracts, including those that are linked via subcontracting to a high-risk main tenderer, once reputational risk and harm is exposed. </div><div><br></div><div>‘We are serious about doing all we can to protect our infrastructure investment programme, service delivery and our development plan for Cape Town. Making things as hard as possible for extortionists and criminals is a focus across City operations. Extortion is a highly organised, lucrative criminal enterprise and the most vulnerable communities are impacted the most as service delivery suffers.</div><div><br></div><div>‘In general, the City has done much work over the past few years to improve tender and contract management. This is evident in the consecutive annual clean audits that the City receives. Good governance and sound financial management, especially through supply chain management mechanisms, are key to unlocking economic opportunities and job creation as Cape Town embarks on its R120 bn planned infrastructure investment programme. The current policy is stable and legislatively compliant, and a critical driver of the City’s successful procurement demand plan, with a 97% tender completion rate in 2022/23 and 95% of tenders already completed as at 31 March 2024,’ said the City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Finance, Councillor Siseko Mbandezi. </div><div><br></div><div>The Supply Chain Management Policy is reviewed annually in accordance with the Municipal Finance Management Act (MFMA) Supply Chain Management Regulation 3(1)(b).</div><div><br></div><div>The proposed amendments to the policy are available to view at City libraries, subcouncil offices, and online at www.capetown.gov.za/haveyoursay.</div><div><br></div><div><strong>Submit comments: </strong></div><div><strong>•</strong><span style="white-space:pre;"> </span><strong>Via the City’s website: www.capetown.gov.za/haveyoursay</strong></div><div><strong>•</strong><span style="white-space:pre;"> </span><strong>Via email: Public.Participation@capetown.gov.za</strong></div><div><strong>•</strong><span style="white-space:pre;"> </span><strong>By hand: City of Cape Town, Supply Chain Management, 8th Floor Tower Block, Cape Town Civic Centre (Attention Adam Kariel)</strong></div><div><br></div><div><strong>The City’s Public Participation Unit will assist people living with disabilities who are unable to submit written comments to have their objections recorded and submitted to the City.
