APLU completed its four-year collaboration in 2019 with the Konrad Adenauer Stiftung and the Office of the Public Protector of South Africa in training investigators of the Public Protector’s office in public procurement law. From 15 to 19 July 2019, Prof Geo Quinot and Prof Sope Williams-Elegbe travelled to Mbombela to conduct an intensive one-week training programme with investigators in the Public Protector’s Mpumalanga office. This was followed by the final session of the programme from 4 to 8 November in Polokwane where training was offered to the Limpopo offices. These were the 8th and 9th provincial offices to be targeted in this programme, which started in 2016 when the original programme was piloted at the Public Protector’s head office in Pretoria. The conclusion of this four-year project resulted in all investigators of the Public Protector’s Office having received intensive training in public procurement law.
