CHIEF JUSTICE SLAMS SASSA OVER CPS CONTRACT EXTENSION REQUEST
"The South African Social Security Agency (Sassa) has been criticised for failing to approach the Constitutional Court earlier to request an extension to its contract with Cash Paymaster Services (CPS). The agency approached the court last month and requested a six-month extension. Sassa's current contract with CPS was declared invalid in 2014. The court then suspended this invalidity in March last year until the end of March 2018, to allow Sassa to appoint a new service provider."
