South African Auditor-General Kimi Makwetu, has released damning findings on Covid-19 relief funding which details the extent of the rot surrounding personal protective equipment tender procurement processes.”Based on what was audited to date, there are clear signs of overpricing, unfair processes, potential fraud, and supply chain management legislation being sidestepped. In addition, delays in the delivery of personal protective equipment and quality concerns could have been avoided through better planning and management of suppliers,” Fin24 quotes Makwetu as saying. Makwetu’s report also stated that there were insufficient controls to ensure receipt of and payment for PPE at the level of quality and price ordered.
