Western Cape Property Development Forum (WCPDF) – Virtual in Conversation Series – EVENT 4: PROCUREMENT – HELP OR HINDRANCE?
November 19, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Western Cape Property Development Forum (WCPDF)
Virtual In Conversation Series
What does the future look like for Property Development?
The WCPDF presents a series of important conversations with leading authorities in both the public and private sectors towards re-activating the economy and to debate what the new ways of doing business can be.
Each virtual session will kick off with a short scene-setting introduction by a prominent keynote speaker, before an industry specialist facilitator invites a relevant panel of experts to engage with the speaker, before throwing the floor open to delegates attending the session online .
While the Western Cape is at the heart of the focus group for this series, the conversations hold enormous relevance for the property development and construction sectors across the entire South African economy and beyond our own borders.
The series is aimed at developers, consultants, contractors, financial and banking representatives, and the diverse public sector in which government officials and politicians play critical roles.
It will be brought to industry via a highly interactive virtual event experience platform that turns sponsors, speakers and delegates into active and engaged participants from the moment they register until well after the event has ended. In other words, this is not your average webinar series.
EVENT 4: THURSDAY 19 NOVEMBER 2020 | 14h00 – 16h00
PROCUREMENT – HELP OR HINDRANCE?
In conversation with Dr Ron Watermeyer
Dr Watermeyer will set the background for this conversation by exploring the following themes:
- Are Treasury regulations at fault or are other spheres of government not up to speed on the regulations?
- Can the Treasury be trusted to facilitate spending?
- What role do the professions (eg. Quantity Surveyors and Engineers) play in the procurement structure of government?
- Who is accountable if budgets are not spent?
- What is the role of the Auditor General?
- Draft Procurement Bill status update.
Alwyn Laubscher (WCPDF) will be facilitating the event and session panellists, (industry specialists to be confirmed), will further engage with Dr Watermeyer with input from delegates, both before and during the event.
