The Future of Tenders & Procurement

 

Did you notice that since 25 February 2022, there has been a drop in the number of new Tender Notices being published? Although not a complete stop…

What is this a result of?

The previous Preferential Procurement Regulations gazetted in 2017 under the PPPFA of 2000 stipulated that only companies that complied with certain criteria, including a minimum B-BBEE status, could apply for tenders. However, Afribusiness challenged these criteria, advising that it was unconstitutional and also resulted in inflated pricing and poor delivery as many businesses with competitively priced and high-quality products were excluded from tendering.

The Constitutional Court has upheld the SCA’s (Supreme Court of Appeal) 2020 findings that the regulations were inconsistent with the framework for preferential procurement in the PPPFA and the Constitution. The ConCourt and SCA decisions have big implications, especially as procurement by governmental, parastatal and state-owned entities totals about R2-trillion annually.

On 25 February 2022, it was issued that Tenders advertised before 16 February 2022 be finalised with Tenders advertised on or after 16 February 2022 be suspended and No new tenders are advertised. On 03 March 2022, an Advisory Note was published that mentioned tenders of a value less than R30 000 were excluded from this. Further to this exemptions may be requested but are restricted to those who cannot wait for either the new regulations or the ConCourt’s guidance.

The Draft Procurement Regulations were published for comment on 11 March 2022, and the deadline for comment is 11 April 2022. These regulations restore the previous rules, where BEE criteria accounted for a maximum of 20% share in the evaluation of tenders.

What is the current state of affairs?

IT Web notes that “This state of affairs has had a significant impact on government tenders and National Treasury’s offer of exemptions for urgent requirements is unlikely to make much of a difference over the coming weeks.”

At Leads 2 Business we have seen a push for Government Departments and Municipalities to communicate their decisions to potential tenderers. Whether this is to suspend, withdraw or cancel until further notice; or to just postpone and extend dates; in a bid to avoid having to readvertise; various strategies have been employed to meet various procurement needs.

We have also seen errata recognising the Preferential Procurement Regulations ambiguity, and removing these criteria from current tenders. Hence these criteria no longer apply when these tenders will be evaluated and adjudicated.

In summary, some tenders are currently being published whether that be without the regulations in question or to the value of less than R30 000.

Where to from here?

The Draft Procurement Regulations will be referred for review and Cabinet will need to approve the revised Bill before it can be submitted to Parliament. Approval from both the National Assembly and the National Council of Provinces will be required before it can be sent to the President to sign into law.

It’s anyone’s guess how long the processes will take and for the Procurement landscape to return to “normal”. At this point, we haven’t noticed any change in the publication of Award Information and perhaps this lull will allow some Departments and Municipalities to work through any backlog they might have or to plan for when this legal knot has been untied. Award Information that is available is being published and providing value to relevant industry players.

Leads 2 Business continues to check our usual sources and the media to keep abreast of the situation, and are updating the tenders with any pertinent information. As Industry leaders for over 20 years we remain committed to providing valuable information for the Building and Construction Industry.

A day in the Life of the Tenders Africa Department

posted in: General 0

My day starts with happy greetings to my colleagues on arrival as I switch on my computer to read through my emails, just to check if there are not any urgent queries that need attending to. I move on to Live Help, assisting and responding to any outstanding tickets. This happens just before my cup of coffee.

From there I move on to my sources (this includes newspapers and websites for all the Africa Countries that I look after), checking for any new leads and updates on existing ones. Checking of sources keeps me busy for a good hour or two, as we try and source out as much as we can for our subscribers. Our tenders are saved in date folders, arranging these according to the first action dates.

Now, it’s action time…..as we start adding the content/tenders saved to our website. For this you need to be on your “A Game” as adding tenders and updating the website involves a lot of concentration, making sure that all information is correct and thorough from the Professionals to descriptions, site meetings, closing dates and restrictions as our subscribers depend on what we publish for them. If there is missing information in the adverts saved, we then have to contact the professionals for confirmations, this can be quite challenging because of the language barriers, time differences as well poor telephone connections.

Adding tenders is a process; it takes up most of my day as it also includes adding new professionals to the system with correct contact information for our subscribers to reach out to them directly for their convenience. And if there are any tenders of big value and large works added on the day, they get sent straight to our Private Projects Department to generate project leads that give more content for our PP subscribers to benefit from. All this teaches you a lot as an individual: from diligence, perseverance, patience and responsibility.

There is never a dull moment in the Leads 2 Business Tenders Africa Department.

I love my daily routine…nothing beats the feeling of knowing that I am contributing to helping our subscribers. All in the name of lifting our Leads 2 Business flag high!

A Day in the Life of the Tenders SA Department

When I started here almost 14 years ago, all we did was source and add tenders, and then answer the phone. But much has changed over the years.

Have you ever had so much on your mind that you didn’t know where to start? Most days feel like that in the Tenders SA Department. Construction-related Tenders are our Main Focus. Obviously, our main priority is getting information out to our subscribers as soon as we can, but there is so much that goes with that.

Sourcing and adding tenders (from like a hundred different sources) to our website and ensuring our subscribers get them timeously.
While doing all the sourcing and adding, we also have to attend to queries via email, phone calls and Live Support.
Queries regarding Tenders already on our system, Tenders our subscribers are looking for and anything related to our system.
We check hundreds of sources daily to keep our information up to date.
Our subscribers can request all kinds of documents on our tenders. So we also spend time each day requesting Site Registers and Bidders Lists. (These are subcontracting Opportunities)
We often follow up on why Tender Documents are not available yet. (Since the Government does not feel our subscribers’ pressure).
We follow up on Award Details on the Tenders that we have published, so that we can close it off on our website, which then subsequently gives our subscribers another opportunity to subcontract.
Our subscribers also have a feature on tender notices where they can request award details so that we know which tender awards they are interested in.

We are the Leads 2 Business Head Office, and as such we also man the Switchboard, along with other Departments, to answer incoming calls.
With this as another avenue to reach potential clients, we also make the odd sale here and there (if you can believe it). Therefore time is also set aside to train our new subscribers (and the existing ones) on our website. Training/Support is ongoing and free of charge to our subscribers. We also follow up on any account related queries for our own subscribers on behalf of the Accounts Department.

It is like a fast car chasing down a dirt road. This may all seem impossible to be done by each of us in a single day, every day, but we never run out of work and always have something keeping us busy and will keep bringing you the latest Tenders.
