To all Suppliers and Potential Suppliers af Goods and Services  

The Department of Arts and Culture would like to sensitise members of the public against organised syndicates scamming unsuspecting members of the public and claiming to be Supply Chain Management officials of the Department.   

One of the ways in which the syndicate operates is by requesting quotations for various goods and services from service providers in the name of the Department of Arts & Culture.  

The Department of Arts and Culture condemns such illegal activities and encourages service providers to confirm the legitimacy of purchase order(s) numbers with the Department’s Supply Chain Management Directorate prior to processing and delivery of any goods or services.
