Chairperson of the Portfolio Committee on Public Accounts; Finance; Primer’s Office and the Legislature Hon. Neels Van Rooyen hailed Treasury SCM Compliance and Municipal Finance Management team who created Supply Chain Management Toolkit.
“We commend the Treasury SCM Compliance and MFM-SCM team for putting a spirited effort in helping us to advance our SCM processes,” said Van Rooyen. He was speaking at the launch of SCM Toolkit which was held at Ilanga Estate.
About 150 delegates attended the launch. They included National Treasury, MPLs, Mayors and MMCs for Finance, Heads of Departments and Entities, Chief Financial Officers of Departments and Entities, Heads of Supply Chain Management. Van Rooyen robustly warned delegates not to fraud the system. “The system has been created to better the quality of the work of SCM practitioners. It will also assist us to get value for money for whatever goods and services purchased.
The SCM Toolkit was described as an automated system which breaks down the SCM processes into smaller but logical steps in order to give guidance on the correct application of SCM prescripts. The aim was to provide support and build the capacity for provincial departments, municipalities and entities. The system would be accessible to all SCM officials across the province.
