ICT tenders: Scam warning

Read time 17min 10sec
Comments (0)

With most tender decisions being placed on hold while National Treasury seeks clarity from the Constitutional Court on the suspension of the Preferential Procurement regulations, news is emerging of tender scams.

The Competition Commission is one organisation which has issued a warning to suppliers regarding this matter. The Commission says there are unscrupulous persons purporting to be employees of the Commission trying to solicit bribes from service providers.

"Calls are made to service providers requesting money to be deposited to certain bank accounts “to close the deal” before they are awarded tenders advertised by the Commission," it says.

The commission says the people are not officials but scammers and that participation in its procurement processes are free and do not require any upfront payment. Service providers with questions are invited to get in touch with the commission via e-mail and are urged to report fraudulent activity to the police.

It's a warning the ICT sector should take seriously, particularly given the current hold on many areas of public sector procurement. It should be noted that this state of affairs is also very likely to result in delays in tender outcomes.

In the meantime the number of new tenders and requests for quotations is seeing a slight increase, particularly from local municipalities and their organisations. Unsurprisingly, the tenders for larger requirements feature extended response and validity periods.

This new approach to public sector procurement benefits the software sector with invitations climbing to 33 from last week's 26. Interest in services remains stable at 30 requests while hardware requests have declined slightly to 19. The telecoms sector is the big loser this week declining to three from nine.
