Sub-contractors versus Consortiums and Joint Ventures

The Preferential Procurement Regulations, 2017 states that 30% of all Government Contracts above R30 million must be sub-contracted to specific categories of SMME's. These SMME's include, but are not limited to, black female owned and black youth owned businesses.

5 Reasons Why Joint Ventures Fail

Joint ventures are collaborative arrangements where two or more businesses decide to collaborate for a common purpose such as bidding for a tender.
There are many examples of successful Joint Ventures, such as Sony-Ericsson, Virgin Mobile India Limited, Nokia (Siemens AG and Nokia Corp), Cadbury Schweppes PLC Carlyle Group Joint Venture and Chery Jaguar Land Rover Automotive Company. They are all well-known and are very lucrative. But having a Joint Venture does not guarantee success.

5 Rules To Remember When Bidding Through A Joint Venture

If you want to bid for a specific tender and you do not have all the necessary skills, recourses, infrastructure or capital you can always look for partners with whom you can join forces through Joint Ventures. Joint Ventures can bring you the success you always wanted without being trapped in a never ending partnership or shareholding scenario.

Joint Ventures - Important Tool in the Tender Process

On 1 May 2015 the Amended B-BBEE Codes of Good Practice came into effect. These Amended Codes will have a major impact on the B-BBEE Scores of all businesses that participate in B-BBEE in South Africa. The fact of the matter is that the B-BBEE scoring levels have changed drastically. If a company does not have any sort of Black Ownership it is going to be very difficult to achieve a decent B-BBEE Score.
