SITA, Eastern Cape govt settle broadband project tender dispute

Tuesday 5 March 2019 | 10:59 CET | News
Sita accused the Eastern Cape of not following an open bidding process for the project and sought a review of the application in court. The parties reached a settlement earlier this month, with the court ruling that any additional work related to broadband services for the Eastern Cape government would be provided by Sita through an open tender process. It added that if any of the parties commit a breach of the agreement and fail to remedy the transgression within seven days, the other party will be entitled to approach the court for an order.
