Finding Sub-contractors

These categories are:

  • Black female owned EME's or QSE's;
  • Black youth owned EME's or QSE's;
  • Black owned EME's or QSE's.

After the Preferential Procurement Regulations were gazetted there is a need for businesses to find sub-contractors.

But where are businesses, which respond to tenders, going to find sub-contractors? We have thought about this and one answer is at Briefing Sessions.

Briefing Sessions or Information Sessions, are usually compulsory for all bidders that want to respond to a specific tender. For this reason, anyone trying to win a specific tender will attend the Briefing / Information Sessions.

You will find all sorts of businesses at Briefing Sessions - from large Johannesburg Stock Exchange listed companies to the small one-man operations or sole proprietors. Many times smaller businesses won't necessarily be able to comply with all the requirements of a tender, and therefor their tender responses will be unsuccessful whereas larger businesses will comply with all the requirements of a tender and their tender responses are successful.

By implementing the 30% sub-contracting rule Government is trying to spread the wealth that comes with winning a tender. This will be good for growing SMME's in the future. We foresee that Briefing Sessions are going to be the place where potential sub-contracting deals are going to be made.

Keep in mind, for a business to become a sub-contractor it will have to be a running concern. Large businesses will only use dependable sub-contractors with a proven track record.

To learn more about this and many other tender conditions please attend one of our How-to-Tender workshops, workshop dates are published on our website at www.how2tender.com. For more information on the tender courses please email Werner at werner@how2tender.com.
