8. Tenders and Proposals
The current policy for procurement is out-of-date and does not comply with the required review date. One instance was noted where no documentation could be provided to evidence the completion of a non-competitive business case, and other performance improvement opportunities around efficiency and consistency were noted. The Municipality should review and renew its procurement policy.
Quick Summary of Specific Findings
