(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.
