Mr S J F Marais (DA) to ask the Minister for the Public Service and Administration:
When will she introduce legislation that prohibits public servants from entering into business dealings with the State?NO843E
The Public Service Act is being amended to include a section that will prohibit public servants from doing business with the state. Our plan is to introduce the Amendment Bill in Parliament in the month of June 2013 if everything goes according to plan. Furthermore, we are in the process of finalizing the consultation process on the Public Administration Management Bill which was withdrawn from Parliament in 2008; the Bill is currently before NEDLAC and we envisage concluding this process by the end of May for tabling before Parliament immediately thereafter.
