DCS to terminate concession contract at Mangaung Correctional Centre
The Department of Correctional Services (DCS) has decided to terminate its concession contract with the Bloemfontein Correctional Services (BCC).
In line with the concession agreement, a termination notice for a period of 90 days has been given to BCC, and thereafter, the contract will cease to operate.
The notice of termination follows the announcement on 20 April 2023 by DCS that it had refereed its contract with BCC for a legal opinion. It has been deemed that BCC is neither competent, nor suitable to continue with the concession contract.
BCC is contracted to operate the Mangaung Correctional Centre, a public private partnership facility.
DCS will immediately resume with an internal exercise for the takeover process. The contract does lay down a procedure to be followed in this regard.
