Siyabulela Campaign: Provincial Treasury's BEE Programme
One of the long-term strategic plan of the Western Cape Provincial Treasury will be the development of a world-class supply chain management process. The Provincial Treasury has been tasked with bringing this vision to fruition, and has decided to redress the BEE as part of its strategic plan by the promotion of a provincial BEE policy. Provincial Treasury has embarked on a process to adopt a broad based BEE strategy, the manner in which to implement it and align it with the legislative and policy frameworks as well as that of the national government's foci on BEE.
The proposal is therefore the adoption of a Black Economic Empowerment policy framework and programme that will allow the province to support and encourage the participation and expansion of BEE classified enterprises.
The following are the Provinces initiatives to adopt and implement Black Economic Empowerment:
- A BEE Procurement Programme relating to provincial procurement; and
- A BEE Supplier Development Programme.
It must be noted that it is envisaged that the programme for woman as defined by Section 9 (5): Codes of Good Practise; of the Broad Based Black Employment Act 53 of 2003 will be encapsulated in the abovementioned policy frameworks.
