National Treasury has said it is not responsible for submitting names to SA's national tender blacklist, which has no names on it despite widespread agreement that corruption is blighting state procurement contracts. 

This follows a report by Corruption Watch, which found that the state's register for suppliers blacklisted from doing business with the state was empty. 

Created in 2004 under the Prevention and Combating of Corrupt Activities Act (PRECCA), the Register for Tender Defaulters was designed to stop suppliers or contractors found guilty of criminal offences from doing business with the state again.
