SA government, please Pay companies within 7 days after service is delivered.
To the South African government. This petition serves to demand that you pay companies that you procure services from within 7 days after the service is delivered.
It is public knowledge every service procured has a budget. It does not make any sense to take the entire month to pay companies after they spent money, sometimes their entire operational budget to supply you with a services. A lot of companies are going out of business because of this and some loose money by halting their day to day services because they don't have operational funds while wating weeks on end to be paid.
We urge you to prioritize paying comapnies that render services to you within 7 days of delivery.
