The Central Supplier Database

19 August 2016

The Central Supplier Database

The Central Supplier Database (CSD) was launched on 1 September 2015.  It is compulsory for all prospective suppliers to be registered on the CSD with effect from 1 April 2016.

 What is the CSD?

  • A single database that serves as the source of all supplier information for all spheres of government,
  • A way of simplifying the process of doing business with government,
  • It enables electronic registration and verification processes,
  • It reduces the exchange of compliance documents in paper form,
  • It eliminates multiple registrations with different organs of state,
  • It reduces the cost for both business and government

 Prospective suppliers should self-register on the CSD website

 The CSD website also hosts the E-Tender Portal where suppliers can access business opportunities.

South Africa’s eTender Publication portal provides a single point of access to information on all tenders made by all public sector organisations at all spheres of government including:

  • National and Provincial Departments,
  • Metros, District and Local Municipalities,
  • Municipal Entities,
  • All Public Entities,
  • State Owned Enterprises,
  • Constitutional Bodies etc.

The eTender Publication Portal facilitates all government institutions to publish their tenders, corrigendum and award notices on a single platform. This portal gives FREE access to public sector tender opportunities in South Africa.
