Tshwane opens tender process to the public

Pretoria – The city of Tshwane has opened its tender processes to the public in a bid to make them more transparent, mayor Solly Msimanga said on Thursday.

“Corruption in tenders happens behind closed doors when politicians sit and make multi-million rand decisions. Now I have opened the doors to the public, and I encourage the public to scrutinise how we spend.”

He sent a written executive instruction to the acting city manager to open future tender bid adjudication meetings to the public.

This was where tenders were assessed and adjudicated on their merits.

“It is the stage where corruption can take place behind closed doors as cronies can be handed contracts contrary to the best interests of the public,” he said.

The public meetings would be advertised.
