The SBD/WCBD6.1 document must form part of all bids invited.  It contains general information and serves as a claim form for preference points for Broad -Based Black Economic Empowerment (B -BBEE) Status Level of Contribution, and explains how tenders or bids are decided.

Functionality and Tenders

In all competitive bids/tenders you as the bidder will have to respond to Functionality. You will need to score a set minimum number of points, measured as a percentage, on Functionality of a competitive bid (tender) in order to advance to the next phase of evaluation in the tender process.

Usually Organs of State evaluate competitive bids/tenders as follows:

New Functionality Scoring Rules

The new Preferential Procurement Regulations 2017 makes provision for new Functionality Scoring rules.

It is stipulated in the new Preferential Procurement Regulations 2017, that the evaluation criteria should be objective, giving enterprises a fair shot at being able to advance to the next phase of evaluation, namely Price and B-BBEE.

Most tenders are evaluated on Functionality, but an Organ of State will indicate in the tender documents how the tender will be evaluated.

Bid Adjudication Committee Rules

All competitive Bids that are awarded by Government Entities must be awarded by a Bid Adjudication committee. 

According to Treasury Regulation 16A6.2 a Government Entity's supply chain management system must, inter alia, provide for the adjudication of bids through a bid adjudication committee, the establishment, composition and functioning of bid specification, evaluation and adjudication committees and the selection of bid adjudication members.

  1. Pricing
