Eskom seeks waivers regarding Nuclear procurement procedure

Eskom has asked the National Treasury for several waivers from normal procurement rules and regulations in the new nuclear build programme. Eskom said in a statement that sections of the Preferential Procurement Policy Framework Act and the Public Finance Management Act might need to be waived as most of the work on the nuclear procurement had been done before the promulgation of the regulations over the last year. Eskom says these are related to the proposed evaluation criteria, which would include elements of localisation and the extension of the bid validity from 12 weeks to 2 years.
