Hunsinger, Mr CH to ask the Minister of Transport
Whether, with reference to the August 2015 report by the former Public Protector, Adv T N Madonsela, titled Derailed, into malfeasance at the Passenger Rail Agency of South Africa, where she inter alia found a problem in the implementation of the supply chain management policy and also highlighted a problem with clause 11.3, he has found that the supply chain management policy has subsequently changed; if not, what is the position in this regard; if so, what are the relevant details of how the specified policy has changed?
The Supply Chain Management Policy, February 2009, Clause 11.3 Bidding Methods, was subsequently changed twice to align to 217 of the constitution and all legislative prescripts. These were effected as the Supply Chain Management Policy, November 2018, driven by the Board of Control, and further enhanced through the current PRASA Supply Chain Management 2020 policy. This has embedded controls and standardized on how the organization executes its procurement activities across the business.
