About How to Tender

Since 2013, HowtoTender assists businesses to respond to requests for quotations, requests for proposals and competitive bids (collectively referred to as tenders). Numerous workshops have been presented throughout South Africa which have been attended by thousands of people representing more than 1000 South African companies.

We continuously develop our training program through working in partnership with our strategic partners, public and private sector institutions, Organs of State and Large Business.  Content are continuously updated with the newest regulations issued.

An advantage for companies and professionals sending their employees to this training is that the amounts spend on this these training sessions are claimable as Skills Development spend according to the Learning Programme Matrix for black people as Category F & G training. This can be claimed as Employment Equity and B-BBEE Skills Development Spend. The hours spend on this training can either be claimed as formal or informal Continuing Professional Development (CPD) hours. Important: We can present the HowtoTender Workshop at your own offices if you have 5 or more delegates.

HowtoTender publishes relevant and informative articles about tenders and business in general on its own website as well as on other partner websites and publications in South Africa.
