Health facilities maintenance charges in question.
A COMPANY responsible for maintenance work in government health facilities across the Eastern Cape stands accused of pulling a fast one with “massive” fraud and corruption, irregular expenditure and possibly fruitless and wasteful expenditure.
Fastmove Electrical has been paid over R537.7-million by government, but following a forensic audit, the national treasury has been urged by the auditors to review all payments to the company.
In the Eastern Cape, the company was awarded 10 contracts for maintenance and repairs to health facilities to the value of R202-million.
Fastmove has sought a summary judgment in the Bhisho high court against the provincial departments of health and public works for unpaid claims of more than R32-million, after the health department paid it R140-million. There are unpaid invoices of R17-million and “work in progress” according to Fastmove of R10-million.
But the findings of the audit, conducted by a consortium which included PricewaterhouseCoopers, Umnombo Consulting and SizweNtsaluba, has led the provincial departments to reject Fastmove’s claims and accuse the company of fraudulent activity.
According to court papers, former health superintendent-general Siva Pillay wrote to the company in July 2012 stating that the outstanding amounts would not be paid because of “massive fraud and corruption”.
The papers suggest that Fastmove has been “galvanised” into legal action against the department because of Pillay’s exit as head of department.
Fastmove is based in Randburg and has offices in other centres, including one in Berea, East London. Owner Vusumzi Mazibuko is cited in the papers.
Among the concerns leading to the forensic audit was an allegation that two provincial government officials, chief engineer in public works Sizwe Sivuka and senior manager for facilities maintenance in the health department Tsepo Mosese, received bribes from Fastmove.
However, the forensic auditors say they were unable to verify the allegation. But the audit allegedly found evidence that:
Fastmove submitted inflated amounts, irregular quotations, ghost suppliers, false invoices with instances of differences between quotations and invoices, and of services not being rendered;
Based on a “re-measured claim” for payment in one contract, Fastmove was overpaid by R11-million on the original claim of R28.7million;
Fastmove did not declare an existing relationship with Tokologo Technical Assignments, which was also involved in the tendering process;
At the Andries Vosloo hospital in Somerset East, “fruitless and wasteful” expenditure of R419 715 was incurred in fixing a boiler before Mosese stopped the work and ordered the installation of a new boiler;
On the same contract, Sivuka withheld documents which showed it would be more cost effective to fix the boiler than purchase a new one. The auditors state his actions amounted to fraud. He also allegedly instructed that payments for the new R8-million boiler be made in two certificates so that the individual amounts claimed did not exceed R5-million;
The department and Fastmove agreed to extend the company’s contracts by R46.2-million, including R20.8-million for “preliminary and general” expenses which were not in line with industry standards.
The auditors said national treasury indicated that total payments to Fastmove amounted to R537.7million.
