Passenger Rail Agency SA’s (Prasa) turn-around strategy as well as a report into its procurement and supply chain management by the Office of the Public Protector are both receiving the attention of the agency’s board and will be brought to the attention of Transport Minister Dipuo Peters.
This is according to the Prasa board‚ which met with Parliament’s Standing Committee on Appropriations in Cape Town on Wednesday. The meeting was called to discuss its financial and non-financial performance for the 2015-2016 financial year.
Former public protector Thuli Madonsela identified billions in fruitless‚ wasteful and irregular expenditure at the agency in her report “Derailed” last year. The rail agency revised its supply chain management policy in July and subscribed to the central database of suppliers in government.
