Report Launch & Dialogue: 



Municipalities procure goods and services all the time. Many of these are critical for service delivery. Too often, municipal procurement is seen as a matter between the municipality and those who are tendering for contracts. But what about the communities who are affected by what the municipality has procured? Can the communities affected by these contracts find out what services are supposed to be delivered on behalf of the municipalities in their areas? The DOI and IBP-SA believe that municipal residents should be able to turn to their municipality’s website for information about the procurement affecting them. Join us at a webinar to discuss the key findings of our latest report that examines 49 municipal websites for transparency in procurement practices of municipalities.

Moderator: Prof Jaap de Visser (DOI)

Welcoming: Ms Franziska Spoerri (Head of Economic Cooperation and Development, Embassy of Switzerland to South Africa, Botswana, Eswatini, Lesotho, Mauritius and Namibia)
