Notice is hereby given in terms of Municipal Finance Management Act 56 of 2002, Sec 116(3) (b), inviting the local community to submit representations to the municipality in relation to the amendment of the contracts listed above.

A contract for the provision of Security Services to various municipal facilities was advertised and awarded to Defensor Electronic Security (Pty) Ltd. The specific areas for the installation of security systems and guarding services were predetermined. It has now become necessary that various other office buildings and strong-rooms requires similar installations to secure critical resources in these areas. The hardware installations must be compatible to the existing infrastructure, network and software for ease of management and monitoring.

A contract for the manufacturing, supply, delivery and installation of high lift water pumps was awarded to Metsi Projects. Upon receipt and evaluation of bids received, the municipality was forced to reduce the scope of work to available funds. Based on the assessment of required pumping capacity, a pump station with 4 pumps is required to ensure certainty of supply to the Sol Plaatje Area. A contract was entered into for the supply of 3 pumps. The municipality is now ready to proceed with the installations. To manage the costs of installations, procurement of the 4th pump is now critical and funding has become available in the 2017/18 and 2018/2019 financial years. It is now necessary that the scope of work be amended from 3 pumps to 4 pumps.

A contract was awarded to V3 Consulting Engineers JV Spatialize (Pty Ltd for the authoring of IDP 2017 to 2022. During the process of authoring, it was clear that there is an urgent need to finalise various sector plans which are annexures to the IDP Document itself. As such, it will be ideal to extend the scope of the existing contract to include the authoring and review of sector plans.

At a Special Council Meeting held on the 4th of May 2017, these proposed amendments were tabled and noted by Council.
