Oellermann said the investigation followed the boundaries set out by a presidential proclamation‚ which specified that the SIU should investigate the department's tenders for kitchens‚ access control‚ fencing and televisions.
"We issued the report to the department and it made a number of conclusions and recommendations ... Apart from disciplinary proceedings instituted against [Gillingham]‚ I’m not aware of any further recommendations that were implemented by the department‚" Oellermann told the commission.
He said there were further indications of wrongdoing by Bosasa at other government entities‚ but these fell outside the proclamation. He described them as “significant” allegations of similar tender irregularities at the department of home affairs and the Airports Company of South Africa (Acsa).
"Because we found evidence of the commission of an offence‚ the SIU is obliged to report such to the NPA ... The SIU will investigate a matter in terms of the proclamation. Where we find evidence in terms of a crime being committed‚ we must hand over to the relevant prosecuting authority. They would then have to action it through the police and a criminal case would need to be registered‚" he said.
