SANRAL EXTENDS PERIOD FOR COMMENTS ON DRAFT INTERIM PREFERENTIAL PROCUREMENT POLICY (PPP) TO CLOSE AT 12H00 MIDDAY ON TUESDAY 21 NOVEMBER 2023
Pretoria, 17 November 2023 – The South African National Roads Agency SOC Ltd (SANRAL) has announced an extension of the deadline for written comments on its draft Interim Preferential Procurement Policy (PPP). The national roads agency has been consulting interested and affected parties about its proposed PPP through a national roadshow to all provinces and also invited the public to submit written comments.
SANRAL spokesman Vusi Mona says the deadline for written comments has been extended until next Tuesday due to a technical glitch. “SANRAL wants to further encourage all interested and affected parties to submit written comments via the email address firstname.lastname@example.org by 12H00 midday on Tuesday, 21 November 2023. The proposed Interim Preferential Procurement Policy (PPP) has been open for comment for the last three (3) weeks, starting on 31 October 2023 and we are now extending the deadline for written comments until next Tuesday. The document can be found on SANRAL’s website (www.nra.co.za) and various social media platforms,” said Mr Mona.
SANRAL started with its PPP consultation roadshow in the Western Cape and Northern Cape on 31 October 2023 and proceeded to host consultations in the Eastern Cape, Free State, KwaZulu-Natal, Limpopo and Mpumalanga. The final consultations took place in Gauteng and North West today, Friday 17 November 2023.
