Fraudulent tenders – CCTV cameras and related equipment
Cape Town – It has come to the attention of the South African National Road Agency (SOC) Ltd that fraudulent bids are being solicited from suppliers of CCTV cameras and related equipment used to monitor traffic on freeways.
Mr Kobus van der Walt, SANRAL’s Regional Manager of SANRAL in the Western Cape says the national road agency follows a legitimate procurement process for any additional CCTV cameras on its network. SANRAL does not and will not require an upfront fee or deposit from prospective tenderers.
He says: “We are aware of fraudsters who under the guise of SANRAL, solicits bids from CCTV camera and related equipment suppliers, and we have reported these incidents to the South African Police Services who are investigating specific cases.”
Van der Walt urged suppliers to contact SANRAL directly (at 021 957 4600) before engaging any party claiming that they are procuring equipment on behalf of SANRAL.
The public can also report such incidents to the relevant authorities or to SANRAL’s Fraud Hotline, free-call number 0800 204 558 or email: [email protected]
