South Africa warns of tighter local content monitoring – “bid prices have been manipulated”

The warning comes amidst alerts of a number of problems with the administration of the policy. Some state bodies have advertised for tenders without local content requirements and have failed to properly evaluate bids and tenders in line with requirements.
