(d) the functions of provincial treasuries;
(e) measures to ensure the integrity of the procurement process;
(f) the power to prescribe different methods of procurement;
(g) a framework for supply chain management;
(h) infrastructure delivery management;
(i) a framework on the disposal of assets;

(k) the repeal and amendment of certain laws.

Have your say – shape this policy.
Important to note; This is a legally mandated public policy-shaping process. By using DearSA’s platform you ensure an accurate record is held by civil society (so government cannot dispute participation facts or figures) which forms a solid foundation for a legal case should the necessity arise. It is not a petition. Your input is immediately sent to government and must, by law, be individually acknowledged and considered. Had this been a petition, all public input would be grouped as a single submission.
