EC Smme Representatives started this petition to SITA Eastern Cape HOD and

We as ICT Smme’s  in the Eastern Cape Province have decided that
we address SITA (State Information Technology Agency) through a petition to voice  our grievances concerning accreditation of companies to their transversal contracts which enable the companies to do business with the state.

Our grievances are listed as follows:
1.  The last time SITA had issued a bid for companies to participate in these Transversal contracts was way back in 2017. Since then no Contract has been refreshed so that those who are not participating in these contracts they can be offered an opportunity to submit their bids as the standard procedure. Some of these contracts are supposed to be refreshed on six (6) months to twelve (12) months basis.

2.  SITA is failing to award on the last bids that were submitted by companies in 2017. Since then companies keep receiving communication letter from SITA which stipulates that the bids are unable to be awarded with the validity period and require an extension.

3.  ICT Smme's are disenfranchised by this conduct from SITA and unable to do business with the State/government departments as it is currently a requirement.

Our petition supported by the ICT Smme's as presented demands the following:

1.  SITA to start issuing Refreshments of the contracts so that those companies interested to be accredited on these contracts can start submitting their bids.

2.  SITA to start awarding the contracts which have not been awarded till to date.

3. SITA to come up with an interim measure that will allow those that submitted their bids in 2017 that are still under adjudication/Evaluation to be allowed to do business with the government departments while SITA is sorting out these demands listed on number 1 & 2.
