It's back to the drawing board for Sassa and Post Office

The chairperson of the Standing Committee on Public accounts has orderd social grants agency (SASSA) and the South African Post office (SAPO) to go back to the negotiating table and report back on Wednesday with a way forward.

Chairperson at Parliament's Standing Committee on Public Accounts, Themba Godi says they will be meeting with the two organisations on Wednesday evening to hear what they have agreed on.

There are disputes of facts. Sassa said to the Post Office you did not indicate your capabilities appropriately in the tender documents and the Post Office says we are capable of doing all the things Sassa says we cannot do.

Themba Godi, Chairperson of Scopa

Sassa says we have judged you based on what you have submitted to us. What is in your bid documents and what you are saying here are not the same.

Themba Godi, Chairperson of Scopa

We feel these disputes of facts are not material when we are looking for a solution between two government entities and in the interest of millions of South Africans we should be able to rise above those things and find a solution. That's why we said they need to go back.

Themba Godi, Chairperson of Scopa
