Advanced Supply Chain, Procurement and Contract Management

The Covid-19 pandemic has brought to the fore just how endemic corruption has become. Companies that have never traded with anyone from the health sectors were awarded multimillion-rand tenders. In some instances, face masks were sold at 50 times their retail prices. The twin scourges of fraud and corruption are among the most significant purveyors of unemployment, inequality and poverty. Fraud and corruption result in the misallocation of resources, which are often squandered on expensive luxury goods and do not contribute to economic production. On the other hand, entrepreneurs and other vital and productive parts of our economy are denied investments, thus also resulting in poverty, unemployment and inequality.

Fraud in the public sector can also be viewed as a form of redistribution of scarce public resources, from the poor and the marginalised to those with social and political capital. According to the 2016 United Nations Economic Commission for Africa report, $100-million was awarded to ghost companies Another report, by Global Financial Integrity in 2013, shows that more than $1-trillion flows out of the African continent annually through illicit and corrupt means.   Prof. Tshilidzi Marwala
