Disinfecting of Building

(2)(a) The Department did not foresee the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic at the commencement of the previous financial year and had therefore not budgeted for the pandemic nor planned for any tenders in the Annual Procurement Plan related hereto. However, The Department had followed all the available prescripts by the National Treasury in the COVID-19 procurement processes.

Quotations were sourced in line with the provisions of the relevant Treasury instructions and a process of multiple award approach was utilised to meet the necessary volumes requested in the distributions for Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and Wear

(2)(b) A report was provided of a positive Covid19 case at the Department, and Facilities Management requested that the entire building be disinfected urgently. Four companies who had provided quotes for other Covid-19related services to the Department was approached and requested to provide a quote within two (2) hours. The deviation is that under normal circumstances suppliers are given three (3) to seven (7) days to respond to quotations. In this circumstances in with the need to have the building functional as soon as possible, suppliers were given period of two hours to respond. This however is in line with provision of the Treasury Instruction Note No.5 of 2020-2021.

(3) Companies are listed under the required commodities on CSD. Quotes were received from multiple companies, and the award was done based on ranking for either price or price and preference (in cases where preference points were claimed).

(4) If the house deems it appropriate, the Minister will make a statement, but does not see any necessity at this stage.
