Commissioner Mike Selloane said the PSC found that there were departments that did not submit financial disclosure forms (FDF) by the due date, adding that executive authorities must hold heads of department accountable for such non-compliance.
“The PSC has found cases of conflict of interest in 11 national departments and three provincial departments. To this end, it is recommended that the HODs must consider taking immediate disciplinary action and report the matter to the National Treasury to restrict the affected companies from doing business with the state,” Selloane said.
He also said that it was found that there were senior managers whose companies were registered on the central supplier database of the National Treasury.
The PSC has also asked Public Service and Administration Minister Senzo Mchunu to consider issuing a directive which would make it compulsory for all government departments to have gifts policy.
