    Stopping the rot: Don’t blame the mouse, blame the hole in the wall!

    IN recent times we have seen the renewed focus to review, clean-up and refocus on governance and/or the lack of it. South Africa is a monopolistic economy driven by the state and a few large companies listed in the Johannesburg Stock Exchange. Both institutions have failed drastically in both governance and transformation of the South African value chain, the emancipation and the economic inclusion majority of South Africans. Regardless of your believes, concerns hope and faith, gender, race, political affiliation; many people will agree that the current economic trajectory is not sustainable, but the same will disagree on interventions required to change this trajectory.
    The governance collapse of both private and public sector was so deep that it left no industry untarnished. Theft, lies, hiding the truth, misrepresentation all due to greed and in the main targeted at supply chain and procurement. The KPMG, Bosasa, Nkonki and may others have looted and compromised public procurement process and systems as they enriched themselves, few executives, politicians and board members of state organs and their institutions.
    In my previous roles as the CEO of State-Owned Entities Procurement Forum, I insisted that all Chief Procurement Officers in the state must sign a Code of Ethics committing themselves to conduct all business relationships with respect, honesty and integrity, and commit to eradicating unethical business practices including bribery, fraud, corruption and human rights abuses.
    Many of these Chief Procurement Officer that we now discover have benefited from private sector corruption, eschewed to sign the code. Many of them though committed to do so initially, started sending their subordinates to SOEPF meetings and avoiding any public meetings or associations with professionals.
    The following write up from Peter Volmink who is Peter Volmink (procurement lawyer, currently employed by a major public entity) seek to create a platform for many procurement professional both from public and private sector to reflect and refocus our activities on What Really Matters!
