  • 6. Transforming Cape Town Merging autonomous Organisations is complex even though enabling legislation was in place:  “Lack of standardised financial policies and procedures”  “IT systems entrench the „old order‟”  “Back-office systems were deemed to be outdated, functionally inadequate and not properly integrated”  “Difficulty in merging these systems was in fact hindering the merger of the administrations and undermining the objectives which motivated the creation of the Unicity”
  • 7. Address by Dr Ivy Matsepe- Casaburri, Minister of Cape Town in Context Communications at Nedlac ICT Annual Forum Meeting, 25 January 2005 City of Cape Town has positioned itself to become one of our most technologically advanced cities, through successful IT sector intervention. By implementing its visionary transformation strategy, Cape Town is now a frontrunner in South Africa’s National IT Strategy. The benefits for all have been enormous. E-government services have been developed; the service to its citizens has been improved. All city employees have access to mainstream banking giving low-income employees a measure of economic empowerment. The cherry on top of the cake for this project, is that they have instituted the largest IT training programme in our history, boosting the IT skills of the city by training thousands of employees. IT businesses owned by the formerly dispossessed are also benefiting through this partnership. In order for Cape Town to establish itself as a municipal services leader there had to be a partnership between, business, labour and the community. I am sharing this success story with you because I want to see more of such initiatives. 7

  • 10. Defining Procurement Procurement refers to the overall process of acquiring a product or service. Depending on the circumstances, it may include some or all of the following: identifying a need, specifying the requirements to fulfill the need, identifying potential suppliers, soliciting bids and proposals, evaluating bids and proposals, awarding contracts or purchase orders, tracking progress and ensuring compliance, taking delivery, inspecting and inventorying the deliverable, and paying the supplier.
  • 11. Public Sector Procurement Trends The U.S. federal government is the single largest purchasing entity in the world The U.S. General Accounting Office (GAO) reports that the federal government alone is wasting billions of tax dollars owing to underleveraged spend and underperforming procurement and supply management operations Procurement is key to reducing the cost structures of government agencies, improving operating performance and service levels, and satisfying policies and regulations The need to do more with less and increased scrutiny of legislators and watchdog groups will force government agencies to improve their cost management operations Public sector procurement initiatives are primarily driven by requirements to comply with contracting regulations and mandates, such as full and-open competition, minority and small business goals, and the spend-to-appropriation culture of government Most governments have a procurement process that was drafted into law by its legislators, interpreted by judicial branch judges, and carried out by executive branch leaders and their staff members Government procurement culture maintains a strong belief that competition (manifested via the RFx process) limits cronyism and corruption, and leads to higher performance and lower costs More than ever, governments across all industries view procurement as a catalyst not only for supply cost reduction and assurance but also for compliance Sources: RAND Corporation, “High Performance Government”, 2005; NASPO Research Brief, May 2005; Aberdeen Group & GCN, “Supply Management in the Public Sector,” May 2004; Aberdeen Group, “Center-Led Procurement”, Nov. 2005

  • 13. Procurement Reform: Asia Pacific / ANZ “E-procurement has been identified as an instrument in public sector reform. It enables government to monitor the efficiency and effectiveness of procurement and provides more transparency and accountability.” “In many government organizations, the tools necessary to complete the procurement transactions (e.g., search, requisition and payment) often reside in different departments or agencies. Related policies and procedures may also reside outside the procurement organization. Therefore, the full integration of the complete end-to-end process and the deployment of usable policies and procedures to support this process remain a key challenge.” http://www.agimo.gov.au/publications/2005/may/e-procurement_research_reports/Case_Studies_on_E- procurement_Implementations.pdf#search=%22Case%20Studies%20on%20E- procurement%20Implementations%22
  • 14. Procurement Reform: European Commission Brussels, 25 April 2006 eGovernment: Commission calls for ambitious objectives in the EU for 2010 Hundreds of billions of euros could be saved for European taxpayers every year as a result of administrative modernisation in the 25 EU Member States, outlined today in the European Commission’s eGovernment Action Plan. Information and communication technology is the key to modernising government services: making them more efficient and more responsive. 100% take-up of electronic invoicing and electronic public procurement is predicted to save 300billion euros every year. All Member States already signed up to an ambitious agenda to achieve these goals in Manchester last year The new eGovernment action plan adopted today by the European Commission addresses five priority areas for 2010 and underlines the commitment of the European Commission to delivering tangible benefits to all Europeans, in cooperation with the Member States: Implementing e-Procurement: Government procurement represents 15% of GDP or about €1.500 billion a year. The Member States have committed to achieving 100% availability and at least 50% take-up of procurement online by 2010, with an estimated annual saving of €40billion. The action plan will lay out a road map for achieving these goals as well as the practical steps required for such large-scale cross-border procurement pilots and full electronic handling of company documents (the “Electronic Company Dossier”).
  • 15. Procurement Reform: Developing Countries ”…procurement is often one of the top three types of spending (besides salaries and debt payments) [in government]. Public procurement spending is estimated to account for 15% of the world’s GDP. The influence of good procurement on the effectiveness of public spending is mirrored by its impact on development of the private sector. A government‟s most direct impact on the private sector is through its procurement behaviour. The government is often the largest investor in and purchaser of services, especially in poorer nations. The way it manages its commercial relations with the business community has a profound influence on whether acceptable business practices will evolve or not, and on the dynamism of the private sector. Procurement systems can promote competitiveness and improve the local market‟s ability to survive in international markets by awarding contracts on an economic basis, just as they can promote inefficiency and corruption by awarding contracts on the basis of personal relations or private negotiations. In this manner, a country‟s procurement system has a significant impact on national investment rates, as well as long-term growth rates. Strengthening procurement can potentially generate enormous savings, especially in developing countries. Improving the performance of a national procurement system even slightly could, in many cases generate enough savings to more than pay for the cost of the reform programme itself and leave a significant amount of money left over to increase e.g. social spending. Strengthening procurement efficiency and increasing transparency might equally increase the confidence and trust of the civil society in its government, in particular in government‟s credibility honesty and commitment to development.”

  • 19. Procurement in the City of Cape Town In terms of Section 217 of the Constitution of the Republic of SA, the City of Cape Town is required to implement a procurement system that is fair, equitable, transparent, cost effective and economical. It is further required by Section 14 of the Municipal Supply Chain Management Regulations to keep a list of accredited prospective providers of goods and services that must be used for the procurement requirements of the municipality though quotations and formal bids. Fundamental to the city’s supply chain management strategy is the fact that procurement is a Strategic Function within Local Government – through which it is able to influence economic development, give action to its developmental objectives and exhibit good governance. In the private sector the supply chain is predominantly a transactional overhead – best suited to transactional outsourcing and where only those procurement items which provide a competitive advantage is retain in-house.
