Davis, Mr GR to ask the Minister of Communications
Why have no (a) disciplinary steps or (b) criminal action taken in the last three financial years against SABC employees responsible for (i) making payments without contracts and (ii) failing to follow procurement processes? ________________________________________________________________
Due to the dynamic nature of SABC operations, there are instances where the SABC is required to broadcast without a contract in place, however, endeavours are carried out to regularise the agreements after the fact.
The SABC has initiated a project to review and align the SABC Procurement Policy to PFMA requirements in terms of original tax clearance certificate.
Disciplinary and criminal action has been instituted where warranted.
