Centurion – Open and transparent competition is necessary in the nuclear build procurement process to ensure South Africa can get the best price for its programme, says an expert.
In a telephonic interview with Fin24 Tim Yeo, former British politician and chair of New Nuclear Watch Europe (NNWE), highlighted lessons learnt from the nuclear build programme in the UK. He explained the importance of a competitive procurement process in lowering costs.
“I think to win and maintain the trust of the people, the more the transparent process is the more people will likely support it. I hope that’s what will happen here,” he said.
