Securing tenders and dealing with set-aside contracts
Our client secured a tender but it carried massive localisation obligations. A localised supply chain had to be delivered within 3 years at a 60% target. Over the period, a fund was established and capitalised to the value of R200m.
At final count, 52 local, black-owned industrial services and manufacturing businesses were sourced and placed on a skill and scale BDS programme. At the point of assessment, our client confirmed a 62% localised supply chain winning an additional tender for same services from the SA government.
