No deal signed with CPS yet – Sassa

Pretoria – The South African Social Security Agency (Sassa) has not signed any new contract or confirmed any new deal with current service provider Cash Paymaster Services (CPS) to issue grants to 17 million beneficiaries.

This despite being 26 days away from the deadline to end its unlawful contract with the provider.

Speaking at a media briefing in Pretoria on Sunday, Sassa’s head of corporate services Dumisile Ndlovu told reporters that there was no deal yet which had been signed with CPS on the matter of distributing grants from April 1.

“A deal will mean a signed off contract at the service level agreement and the signed off contract will entail deliverables and the core structure, therefore there is no deal,” Ndlovu said.
