The Minister of Public Works and Infrastructure
1 I have been informed that the Department received the letter of demand without a breakdown of the amount claimed as well as a copy of a non-compliant lease which was signed by one party to a contract. The matter was referred to the attorneys of City of Tshwane to provide the breakdown of the claim and justify its legitimacy. To date, the region has not received response. No payment will be effected until the claim is verified.
(2) No payment arrangement has been concluded with City of Tshwane.
a) There is no payment agreement in place.
b) The Department through its Legal Services has requested the breakdown of the amount claimed from the Attorneys as this information was not included, so that the Department knows from what period is the claim based. Once the department is in receipt of such information, verification will be conducted on the system. Finance and REMS through Legal Service will confirm whether the claim is payable or not.
