We provide innovative and comprehensive solutions to the complex problems that arise when the State contracts with the private sector for goods and services.
We assist with advice on all legislation that potentially applies to public procurement, including in South Africa, section 217 and other relevant provisions of the Constitution, the Municipal Finance Management Act, the Preferential Procurement Policy Framework Act, the Public Finance Management Act, the Promotion of Administrative Justice Act, the Prevention and Combatting of Corrupt Activities Act, the Construction Industry Development Board Act, the Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment Act and the Promotion of Access to Information Act.
We advise on a wide range of procurement law matters, including the design, implementation and evaluation of procurement processes, preferential procurement, deviations from public tender requirements, transversal contracts and "piggybacking" arrangements, the purchase, sale and leasing of immovable property by the government, as well as bringing and defending judicial review proceedings.
We have advised on some of the largest and most ground-breaking procurement projects in Sub-Saharan Africa including the South African Renewable Energy Independent Power Producer Procurement Process.
We also provide advice on public-private partnerships and can guide clients through the rigorous regulatory processes that are required.
