QUESTION NO: 912
912. Ms B C Blaai (Cope) to ask the Minister of Correctional Services:

Whether her department has considered joining with other departments to procure new computerised systems and information system maintenance to achieve a substantial reduction in consultancy costs; if not, why not; if so, what has been done interdepartmentally in respect of information technology and communications (ITC) to gain the best value for money?

The Justice, Crime Prevention and Security Cluster has already recognized that for purposes of effective communication flow and cost-reductions, such co-operation is necessary.

Discussions in this regard are underway
