BEE Procurement Opportunities within Municipality
The George Municipality adopted a Supply Chain Management Policy that is fair, equitable, transparent, competitive and cost effective. The Municipality has a preferential procurement system which is in line with the Preferential Procurement Policy Framework Act.
The PPPFA allow for a preferential point system to be followed, placing emphasis on historically disadvantaged individuals and empowerment of local suppliers. In the current financial year from July 2009 up to the end of April 2010 George Municipality requested 89 formal written quotations and tenders. About 73% was procured from local suppliers, 27% from HDI and 9% from women owned companies.
Potential suppliers are urged to complete the necessary application form for registration on the SCM database of George Municipality.
