This chapter reviews the South African government procurement regime and asks whether adherence to international trading instruments and rules, and in particular the World Trade Organization’s Agreement on Government Procurement, would, and should, permit the maintenance of national policy criteria in the decision-making matrix for procurement, whilst simultaneously enabling South Africa to realize the efficiency gains of trade liberalization. It also examines the likely impact, if any, that adherence to these rules would have in reducing the procurement system’s vulnerability to corruption.
