Public procurement is generally known to be the acquisition of
goods and services by the government from the private sector.
Construction works are considered to constitute services and
as such are not specifically referred to in the Constitution of the
Republic of South Africa, 1996. Re-categorising public
procurement may hold many advantages for the regulation of
construction procurement law as a unique form of public
procurement in South Africa. The definition of construction
works is thus important when establishing what is procured in
construction procurement. This definition in turn may indicate
that the procurement of construction works is indeed a unique
form of procurement and should accordingly be re-categorised
in South African public procurement law.
