City of Cape Town's New Technology Evaluation Process
Some of the businesses listed in the database above have been through the City's New Technology Evaluation Process. This process is for suppliers wanting their water-related technologies to be considered for public sector use or would like their product to pass through the initial public procurement filtering process. The Western Cape Government has partnered with the City of Cape Town’s New Technology Committee to support water-related technology and service providers to promote the uptake of innovative solutions to address current and future water issues. This committee meets regularly and includes representatives from the City and WCG to review new technologies or related information provided to government for procurement consideration. Companies have a chance to present their goods and services at this meeting in a fair and transparent manner. The outcomes of these meetings are then shared with relevant WCG and CCT branches and departments to ensure efficiency and potential product or service procurement.
If you would like to be part of the New Technology Evaluation Process, send an email to Mario.Carelse@capetown.gov.za to be included on the agenda; receive the date of the next committee meeting (the committee meets every 4 – 6 weeks); to be informed of what information needs to be sent prior to the next meeting; and to be emailed the required forms.
Every product or service procured by a public entity would still need to be done in a competitive, transparent tender process (even under emergency conditions, where the procurement is simply accelerated). Please note that to be able to tender on any projects put out to tender by the Western Cape Government, service providers will need to be registered on the Central Supplier Database (CSD). More information about this database is available at https://www.westerncape.gov.za/gc-news/227/42114 and you can self-register online at the CSD website www.csd.gov.za.
