TCS TOTAL CLIENT SOLUTIONS (TCS) is not satisfied the City of Cape Town “applied its mind correctly” in awarding its archrival Syntell the RlOO million contract to manage the city’s traffic fine collection service.

TCS MD Shaheed Mohammed says he has asked the city for information as to how the contract was awarded. He adds that the company “is reserving its rights”.

TCS, formerly Labat Traffic Management, has held the lucrative contract to manage the back-office functions of the city’s traffic management service for the past five years. However, rival company Syntell is to take over this function from 1 July and hold it for the next three years.
