Project description:


The National Port Authority of South Africa operates the Thirteen Port Terminals all over the 
Country. I'm with the Tender's Committee, supervising ongoing and the closure of completed projects 
as awarded by the government. My reason for writing you is because we seek a partner to assist in 
reprofiling funds derived from an already concluded project which we presided over from inception 
to closure and have favorably adjusted in our favor.
The project was over-valued at R155,700 000.00 (17.3 million united states dollars); the primary 
aspects of the project was the building of two rubble-mound breakwaters; bulk excavations to form 
the harbor inner basin; construction of land and sea reclamation areas and construction of concrete 
quay walls which will provide five berths. We would like you to participate in our bid to reprofile 
these funds under your supervision pending when we make adequate arrangements to meet you after the 
finalization of this arrangement. We propose that you be compensated with 20% of the funds if  this 
is agreeable with you; however we will need to draw up a memorandum of understanding that will form 
a binding framework for us all to work with and stand by. 

If you feel this may be of interest to you, write me back on with your direct 
telephone so I can forward you further information which will give you a clear overview of this 
exciting opportunity.

Director, Tenders Committee
