It is imperative for all potential bidders to familiarize themselves with the tender process in South Africa. There are procedures that need to be followed by Government Entities when they issue a request for quotation or competitive bid (tender). These procedures are governed by different Acts such as the Preferential Procurement Policy Framework Act (Act no 5 of 2000) and the Public Finance Management Act (Act 1 of 1999 as amended by Act 296 of 1999) to name but two.


Functionality in Tenders Part 2 - 10 Tips

23 May 2016

Tenders in South Africa are measured on three principles, namely Functionality, Price and Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment (B-BBEE). An Enterprise's ability to execute a contract is measured through the Functionality Principal in the Tender Environment. If an Enterprise's tender response does not pass the Functionality test it can't be measured on Price and B-BBEE. Enterprises that respond to tenders must ensure that they will pass the Functionality test in order to advance.
