The South African National Roads Agency Limited (Sanral) has embarked on a series of engagements throughout the country to consult stakeholders on a proposed interim preferential procurement policy (PPP).

The PPP engagement period is open until November 17, with stakeholders invited to submit their comments to commentsppp@nra.co.za .

The first engagement took place at the State-owned roads entity’s Western Region office, in Belville, Cape Town, with virtual links to the towns of Pacaltsdorp, George and Kimberley.

Sanral’s Western Region office covers both the Western Cape and Northern Cape provinces.

Some of the concerns that were raised so far include opportunities for small, medium-sized and microenterprises, transformation of the construction industry and skills development and training.

Sanral first adopted its PPP at board level in May, however, there were a number of legal challenges to the policy, launched mostly by construction companies in various courts in the country.

As a result, Sanral last week announced that it would withdraw the policy and start consultations on an interim policy.
