SA spends R3.2bn on telecoms bill

The South African Government spends R3.2 billion in 2015 on fixed line  telephone and cellular services, according to the country’s Treasury on its latest report. By Staff Writer


The Government under President Jacob Zuma spends R800 million on mobile communications and R2.2 billion on fixed line.

This was contained in the progress report on the work of the Office of the Chief Procurement Officer  (OCPO) of the National Treasury, which stated that procurement of goods, services and works over the next three years will amount to R1.5 trillion across all spheres of government

“Together, national and provincial government spends approximately R3.2 billion annually on telecommunication. Spending on mobile is R800 million and fixed line R2.2 billion annually,” said the report.

“Currently, the procurement of the service is fragmented across all government entities. Based on research and engagement of the South African supply market, savings of R400 million a year can be achieved. The project is currently at market engagement stage and awards will be made for implementation from 1 April 2016.”

The OCPO is accelerating measures to make it easy for business and government to transact; and at the same time ensure that government purchase what it needs at the right time, the right price, in the correct quantities and delivered to right location.
