Procurement of Personal Protective Equipment

In the spirit of transparency, Western Cape Provincial Parliament (WCPP) Speaker Masizole Mnqasela wishes to disclose its activities in respect of the purchasing of personal protective equipment (PPE) in response to the global COVID-19 pandemic.

 

The PPE that has been purchased by the WCPP since the start of the lockdown has been both in order to ensure compliance with workplace readiness requirements for employees as well as for the protection of Members of the Provincial Parliament who have been actively engaged in working and providing ongoing support in communities out in their constituencies since the declaration of the National State of Disaster on 15 March 2020 and the national lockdown on 26 March 2020.

 

PPE items procured included three-layer reusable cloth face masks, hand and surface sanitiser, social distancing markers, disposable gloves and face masks, infrared thermometers, face shields and hands-free sanitiser dispensers. In addition to the PPE procured for officials and Members of the Provincial Parliament, the WCPP has also procured a generous quantity of reusable cloth face masks and bottles of hand sanitiser for distribution in communities across the province.

 

Altogether 12 businesses have benefitted from this procurement of PPE, with a total cost of R328 814.20. The breakdown is as follows:
