Procurement Disclosure Report: 01 February 2022 to 28 February 2022
The Provincial Treasury is pleased to publish the twenty first monthly edition of the Procurement Disclosure Report for the period 01 February 2022 to 28 February 2022. This is in line with the requirements of section 217 of the South African Constitution and demonstrates our continued commitment to good governance and transparency in public procurement in the Western Cape.
Total COVID-19 procurement expenditure for February 2022 amounted to R53.536 million of which R53.530 million was spent by provincial departments and R6,250.00 by public entities.
Cumulative COVID-19 expenditure for 2021/22 financial year now amounts to R803.246 million of which R802.585 million was spent by provincial departments and R661,473.31 by public entities.
Most of the expenditure for the month of February 2022 was incurred by the Departments of Health, Transport and Public Works and Premier. The expenditure of the Department of Health focused on personal protective equipment (PPE), non-PPE expenditure and the vaccination rollout programme; the Department of Transport and Public Works focused on the hire of Brackengate hospital facilities management fees, medical waste security; transport services and storage; and the Department of the Premier on COVID-19 related communication and advertising services in respect of prevention; awareness and behaviour change.
Detailed monthly reporting on all COVID-19 procurement expenditure transactions is made available via the COVID-19 dashboard of the National Treasury. This report summarises provincial information, and the dashboard is also replicated on the Provincial Treasury at the following link: https://www.westerncape.gov.za/provincial-treasury/procurement-disclosure-report.
Provincial Treasury also produces a quarterly and annual summary report on all COVID-19 procurement expenditure. These additional reports provide beneficial insight into COVID-19 expenditure over a longer, consolidated period. Monthly reports are produced in summarised format, with additional information available on the weblink indicated above.
Please note that all previous reports are available on the Provincial Treasury website.
I would also like to warmly congratulate one of our Provincial Treasury employees’, Jenine Mostert, for winning a Gold Award for the ‘Inspirational Support Employee’ in the ‘Best Researcher of the Year’ category at the 2022 Batho Pele Excellence Awards this week.
Ms Mostert has been instrumental in contributing to the now regular production of the monthly, quarterly, and annual Procurement Disclosure Report (PDR), which is the gold standard of procurement transparency in South Africa.
She has also been the lead team member who designed the soon to be launched Provincial Treasury PDR dashboard.
