Dear ASAQS Member,

By now you should have received a direct email from the Competitions Commission with a covering letter and survey form.

The Competitions Commission is currently reviewing our professions application to allow the SACQSP (as mandated by current and existing legislation) and supported by the ASAQS to publish the PrQS fee guidelines. The issue being debated by the Competitions Commission is that they are currently trying to establish if such a prescribed professional fee should be viewed as being “anti-competitive”.

The Competitions Commission sent an email out directly to all registered and practicing professionals on the SACQSP database late last week.

The overall intent of the email and the information contained within the attachments is to allow all registered Quantity Surveyors an opportunity to comment on this critical matter by completing the questionnaire compiled by the Competitions Commission.

It should also be noted that the SACQSP supported by the ASAQS has already submitted an application to the Competitions Commission to allow our profession to continue to publish the PrQS Guideline Fees.

The ASAQS is requesting that you please complete the survey and express your valuable and necessary opinion. Your survey will be received directly and read by the decision makers themselves.

Please print out the survey sheet and respond directly as follows;

            Mr Mbongiseni Ndlovu / Mr Tlabo Mabye
