WHY SHOULD OUR SERVICE PROVIDERS CARE ABOUT FRAUD AND CORRUPTION?
A service provider found guilty of dealing in tender corruption can be listed on the register for tender defaulters at National Treasury. This means that you will be banned from doing business with government for between 5 and 10 years.
This register is also open to the public.
Example: Corruption with service providers is where a person pays a bribe or requests a bribe to be awarded/to award a contract. The gratification is money or gifts received, entertainment, loans, employment or any other benefit.
If you offer a bribe you are already guilty of corruption!
