Rand Water clarifies water tank price

Rand Water has expressed concern about inflated prices that are being thrown around in the media, overstating the suppliers’ costs for water tankers.

According to Rand Water, they have partnered with the Department of Basic Education’s national return to school programme to ensure safe and clean water for those school communities in need, as the nation battles with Coronavirus, which has claimed close to 2 000 lives in the country.

“We were appointed as the implementing agent, after an implementation protocol between ourselves and the Departments of Basic Education (DBE) and Water and Sanitation (DWS) was finalised on 13 May 2020,” the water utility explained.

Rand Water said the implementation protocol is per the Intergovernmental Relations Act, 2005 (Act No 13 of 2005).

“We have noted with concern the misinformation quoted in media articles, as well as on social media platforms exaggerating the supplier costs for water tanks used during the intervention,” Rand Water said.

In addition, Rand Water said all the service providers contracted as part of this intervention are accredited vendors registered on the National Treasury’s Central Supplier Database (CSD).

“The CSD is a database of organisations, institutions and individuals, who can provide goods and services to government. It is the single source of key supplier information for organs of State since April 2016 and it provides consolidated, accurate, up-to-date, complete and verified supplier information to procuring organs of State,” the water utility said.

All the costs for the successful implementation of the intervention fall within the market price range for the equipment and installation costs utilised for the intervention, Rand Water said.

According to Rand Water, the cost for the supply of a 5 000 litre tank ranged between R4 500 and R5 400.

Meanwhile, the cost for the supply of a 10 000 litre tank ranged between R9 000 and R10 800.

“The Implementation Protocol has a contractual value of R600 million to be payable by the DBE to Rand Water. To date, the DBE has transferred an amount of R200 million to Rand Water.”

Rand Water said according to the agreement between parties, their role is to supply and install water tanks and provide water-cutting services to the respective schools during the declared national disaster period.

“An important second phase of the intervention is the construction of sustainable water sources for the schools through borehole drilling and pumping, as well as the establishment of reticulation systems to the closest source of water, wherever possible.”

There was also a social media post on Twitter claiming the KwaZulu-Natal Department of Education purchased water tankers for R170 000 each. The department in the province has since disputed it.

    and video clips, this website could undeniably be
    one of the best in its field. Excellent blog!

    mind. I was interested to find out how you center yourself
    and clear your thoughts prior to writing.

    Cheers!

  9. Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids.
    I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off
    topic but I had to tell someone!

    to be happy. I have read this publish and if I may I want

    submit, I’ll attempt to get the hang of it!

  44. Thanks for the concepts you share through this website. In addition, many young women exactly who become pregnant never even aim to get medical care insurance because they fear they would not qualify. Although some states at this moment require that insurers give coverage no matter the pre-existing conditions. Rates on these kinds of guaranteed plans are usually larger, but when thinking about the high cost of health care it may be your safer way to go to protect a person’s financial future.
