The minimum requirements for a Start-up Business to tender.

By Werner van Rooyen, Director of HowToTender (Pty) Ltd which specializes in tender consulting and tender training.

The Preferential Procurement Policy Framework Act dictates that Organs of State enforce certain minimum requirements when awarding tenders, to verify that an enterprise is legally operating and is tax compliant.

These are:

  1. Company registration documents.
  2. Be registered on the Central Supplier Database
  3. A tax clearance certificate: The business must be registered with SARS for Income Tax purposes:

But remember that to have a registered company and to have a business, is not the same thing.

These items are only the beginning.  Once you comply with these three items you must actively start doing business.  In other words, your business must be a running concern.
