12/12/2016: City Acts on the Non-Payment of Contractors
12 December 2016
The City of Johannesburg has suspended 13 officials working in the Department of Community Development, after receiving a forensic report, on allegations of fraud, collusion, maladministration and corruption linked to the payments of contractors.

Furthermore, all contractors that were implicated in the report were blocked in the system, pending the process of blacklisting and restriction.

As a response to the forensic investigation report, the City has opened criminal cases against service providers and implicated officials at Florida Police Station, all payments due to contractors for services rendered are withheld until criminal producers are completed.

Member of Mayoral Committee, Cllr Nonhlanhla Sifumba said in future, contractors will be paid in terms of the municipality’s procurement policies.  Cllr Sifumba has strongly warned that quality of work of contractors will be monitored more vigorously in future.

It was found that some contractors are not capacitated, fully equipped and skilled to do certain repairs and maintenance work. Contractors who deliver poor work performance will be penalised and will not be paid until the City is satisfied with their work.

The City is committed to achieving a 5% economic growth rate by aligning its plans and policies and observe good governance practices as a priority of the new administration. We believe that small to medium service providers must be particularly given priority to sustain their businesses which would help to reduce the city’s 800 000 unemployment rate to manageable levels.
