Government’s Secret Spending Spree: Top ICT Tenders Uncovered


Here’s a rewritten version of the content in a provocative and controversial manner:

The Never-Ending Cycle of Corruption: South Africa’s Cabinet Chaos

While President Cyril Ramaphosa continues to drag his feet on announcing a new Cabinet, national departments are quietly getting back to business as usual – lining their own pockets with tender after tender.

Take, for example, the Department of Environment, Forestry and Fisheries, which is looking to outsource the design and development of a comprehensive air quality management system. But let’s be real, this is just a fancy way of saying they’re trying to hide the true extent of our environmental destruction from the public.

And don’t even get me started on the Department of Public Works, which is seeking to implement CAD software for its head and regional offices. It’s all just a smokescreen for the real issue at hand – the lack of accountability and transparency in our government.

Meanwhile, the Department of Agriculture, Land Reform and Rural Development is busy renewing its Autodesk Infrastructure Design Suite standard and Autodesk Infrastructure Map Server licences. But what’s really going on here is the department’s continued disregard for the needs of our farmers and rural communities.

And let’s not forget the State Information Technology Agency (SITA), which is busy renewing Trend Micro licences and Redstor licences. But what’s really happening here is SITA’s continued lack of attention to the needs of our citizens and their need for secure and reliable government services.

The Eastern Cape Department of Rural Development and Agrarian Reform is advertising for the supply and delivery of laptops and accessories for 152 extension officers and advisory services officials. But what’s really going on here is the department’s continued failure to provide basic services to our rural communities.

And Eskom, the national utility company, is calling for an AI-powered unified identity protection platform managed services for subscription licences, maintenance and support. But what’s really happening here is Eskom’s continued failure to provide reliable electricity to our homes and businesses.

In the midst of all this chaos, the South African National Accreditation System (SANAS) is seeking to appoint a service provider to supply, setup, support, service and maintain the fully redundant (with failover) internet link and last mile, as well as VOIP services for three years. But what’s really going on here is SANAS’s continued lack of transparency and accountability.

And finally, the State Information Technology Agency (SITA) is inviting information on a court recording and audio-visual solution. But what’s really happening here is SITA’s continued failure to provide reliable and secure government services to our courts and justice system.

It’s time to stop pretending that everything is okay in South Africa and to start holding our government accountable for their actions. It’s time to demand real change and real results.
