Difference between an Africa Tender & SA Tender

At Leads 2 Business we have two different research Departments in Tenders; South Africa and Africa.

In the Africa Department, we research in 17 different counties. Examples of areas of coverage include Angola, Botswana, Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Eswatini (Swaziland), Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Lesotho, Malawi, Mauritius, Mozambique, Namibia, Nigeria, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia, Zimbabwe. These tender opportunities are intended for our clients whose primary business focus is in Africa or alternately for those who wish to expand their company’s coverage, serviceable regions and scope of work into Africa.

Tender notices are sourced throughout Africa via our extensive network of newspapers, online resources and personal contacts. Should a tender be in another language we translate it into English as a courtesy for our subscribers.

Key considerations to our research team are content, timeous acquisition of tender information and the critical details that facilitate ease of communication, more specifically: telephone numbers, postal addresses and e-mail addresses of the contacts on the tender.

In Africa, it is common for a non-refundable fee to be charged to obtain Tender Documents. Africa Tenders also require us to specify “Local Time” next to the closing date and/or site inspection because of the time difference and subscribers must also take note of the dialling codes for the specific region.

Below are examples of an SA Tender and an Africa Tender View:
