Masango, Mr SJ to ask the Minister of Transport
(a) Who has been appointed as the service provider to co-ordinate the implementation and roll out of the road safety programs as outlined in the 365- day Road Safety Program aligned with the United Nations Decade of Action for Road Safety global campaign for a period of 24 months, (b) when was the service provider officially appointed, (c) what are the (i) milestones and (ii) deadlines with regard to the programme and (d) what (i) progress, (ii) procedures and (iii) mechanisms exist to ensure the service provider delivers on its obligations?
(a) The Department has not as yet appointed any service provider to co-ordinate the implementation of the 365- days Road Safety Programs. Tender evaluations were conducted and the successful bidder’s pricing was above the allocated budget for the project, therefore no appointment was made. The co-ordination of all the 365- days Road Safety Programs is currently being done internally by the Department , Provincial Departments of Transport, Transport Entities and some of its major role-players.
(b) (b),(c) and (d), falls away.
