Shivambu, Mr F to ask the Minister of Finance
(1)With reference to his reply to question 168 on 24 May 2018, was a tender advertised when a certain person (name furnished) was appointed as a consultant; if not, how was the specified person appointed; if so, on what date was the tender advertised, adjudicated and finalised; (2) on what date was the specified person appointed as a consultant; (3) was the specified person’s contract ever renewed; if so, (a) how many times was it renewed and (b) what were the financial implications; (4) what amount did the National Treasury pay the person in each year since the person was appointed?
1. No tender was advertised for the services of (name furnished) but a single source deviation was approved.
2. The certain person (name furnished) was appointed as a consultant on 1 August 2011.
3. I refer the Honorable Member to my response to Hon Dlamini (EFF) question number 1080 (NW1172E) dated 20 April 2018, where I responded to a similar question in great detail. The process to appoint the consultant for two contracts followed all the supply chain rules for a single source technical assistance contracting process, so no tender was advertised.
4. The amounts were progressive based on the DPSA scale rate increment.
