The PRWG believes the Public Procurement Bill is flawed and some critical changes still need to be made. “…public concerns must be addressed before the current draft is passed by Parliament.” The statement released on 11 September outlines what these changes are.
The Procurement Reform Working Group, formed in 2020, includes representatives from a range of civil society organisations as well as independent researchers who collaborate on research and advocacy towards reforming the public procurement system in South Africa (procurement law reform, mechanisms for enhanced transparency in the public procurement system, and more).
