This was my second time attending the workshop/webinar and I found it very informative. It has given me a lot to think about and ideas that I can suggest to my Directors. I am also glad that the sessions were recorded as I was not feeling well last week so that will really help me.

It is for the Organ of State that has issued the tender to decide. The sad news is that few tenders are awarded to start-ups. The bulk of tenders are awarded to running concerns – businesses with a history.

Each tender will request returnable documents. However, the most important documents are a Tax Compliance PIN, a Central Supplier Database (CSD) report and a B-BBEE certificate or EME/QSE SWORN Affidavit.

How to Tender is EDTP SETA accredited.

Our courses are accredited for Continuous Professional Development (CPD) activities at the Engineering Council of South Africa (ECSA) as well as The South African Council for Planners (SACPLAN).

For Employment Equity and B-BBEE purposes, the amount spend can be claimed as Skills Development Expenditure on Learning Programmes F & G in the Learning Programme Matrix for Black People as a percentage of the leviable amount.

The aim of our training is to improve the chance of success by cutting administrative oversights with tender submissions. Remember that submitting a 100% compliant tender response document will not guarantee success. The final decision to award a tender belongs to the Tender Bid Evaluation and Tender Award/Adjudication Committees and there may be other considerations when awarding tenders.
