As is the case in many other countries, public procurement law in South Africa has emerged from the combined application of legal rules from many distinct fields of law to the phenomenon of state contracting. Since no single comprehensive statute or code has been enacted to cover this field, public procurement law in South Africa remains a hodge podge of rules from all the major branches of law. However, increased focus on this area, including increased regulation, significant increases in litigation as well as increased academic attention, has started to mould together the mixture of diverse legal rules into what is now emerging as a distinct law of public procurement.
