(b) an enabling framework for preferential procurement;
(c) a Public Procurement Regulator within the National Treasury and its functions;
(d) the functions of provincial treasuries;
(e) measures to ensure the integrity of the procurement process;
(f) the power to prescribe different methods of procurement;
(g) a framework for supply chain management;
(h) infrastructure delivery management;
(i) a framework on the disposal of assets;
(j) dispute resolution mechanisms; and
(k) the repeal and amendment of certain laws.

Comments on the bill can be emailed to Mr Simon Manyama at by no later than Tuesday, 30 June 2020. The initial deadline was 31 May 2020.
