Cash Paymaster Services (CPS) has asked the Constitutional Court to amend its judgment ordering that a new service provider should take over social grant payments after March 2018.

The South African Post Office mentioned this in passing, while briefing parliament’s Telecommunications and Postal Services Portfolio Committee.

SAPO is expected to take over from CPS on April 1.

In 2017, the Constitutional Court ruled that the contract between the CPS and the South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) was invalid.

It then gave SASSA a deadline for a new service provider to take over.

The CPS application follows another affidavit filed by SASSA last week at the Concourt.

SASSA also wants the court to allow the extension of the CPS contract for six months, to help bridge the handover of grant payments.
