Bhanga, Mr BM to ask the Minister of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs
(1) Whether he is aware that a certain official (Mr K Ngema) from the Ekurhuleni Metropolitan Municipality wrote to the bid adjudication committee (BAC) (BB7 Attached)requesting that they use a new form to change their operating procedures in order to ensure that all tenders above R10 million be forwarded to the specified person; (2) Whether he is aware that the specified official requested that the new procedure be applied retrospectively to three tenders that have already been adjudicated by the bid adjudication committee; if so, what is his position in this regard? NW2830E
I am not aware of these assertions, nor, have not investigated this matter and therefore, I have not established any facts surrounding this matter.
I intend writing to the MEC responsible for Local Government in Gauteng, in terms of Section 106(4)(b) of the Local Government: Municipal Systems Act, 2000 (Act No.32 of 2000), requesting him to commission and investigation into the matter.
