Procurement Disclosure Report: 1 December 2021 to 31 December 2021

2 February 2022

The Provincial Treasury is pleased to publish the nineteenth monthly edition of the Procurement Disclosure Report for the period 1 December 2021 to 31 December 2021. 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 December 2021 amounted to R69,85 million of which R69,74 million was spent by provincial departments and R108,877.10 by public entities. Cumulative COVID-19 expenditure for 2021/22 financial year now amounts to R675,01 million of which R674,36 million was spent by provincial departments and R650,065.56 by public entities.

Most of the expenditure for the month of December 2021 was incurred by the Departments of Health, Transport and Public Works and Premier. The expenditure of the Department of Health focussed on personal protective equipment (PPE), non-PPE expenditure and the vaccination rollout programme; the Department of Transport and Public Works focussed on non - PPE expenditure such as the hire of Brackengate hospital facilities, human resources, transport services, accommodation and the hire of the CTICC as a mass vaccination site; 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 website at the following link:;

Provincial Treasury now 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.
