Katekani speaks on the primary objective of the Public Procurement Bill and adds that there is currently a lot of debate around the timing of the NHI Bill, but that the Public Procurement Bill has been long in the making and is a necessary enhancement of the public procurement process, particularly because its objectives seek to contribute immensely to economic growth.


Katekani emphasises that the Bill specifies that the Minister of Finance will be required to prescribe measures for the public, civil society and the media to access, scrutinise and monitor procurement processes, which indicates a commitment to transparency and public oversight of procurement activities.
