sub contracting | Page 9 | SA-Tenders.co.za

There seems to be a lot of confusion amongst entrepreneurs when it comes to tenders and sub-contracting. The Draft Preferential Procurement Regulations, have been gazetted and are currently up for review. However, these Regulations are the major cause for the confusion. Many entrepreneurs ask whether they should sub-contract or not whilst responding to a tender.

Finding Sub-contractors

According to the Draft Preferential Procurement Regulations, 30% of all Government Contracts above R30 million must be sub-contracted to specific categories of SMME’s. These categories are:

  • Black female owned EME’s or QSE’s;
  • Black youth owned EME’s or QSE’s;
  • Black owned EME’s or QSE’s.

Once the new Regulations are gazetted there businesses will need to find sub-contractors to fill this requirement.
