Education and Awareness Compliance to Central Supplier Database for Local SMMES

22 May 2019
Immediate Release

Johannesburg Water is conducting an education and awareness campaign for local Small, Medium and Micro-sized Enterprises (SMMEs) to register and comply with the Central Supplier Database (CSD) requirements across the City of Joburg. The motive for conducting these registrations and education seminars is because Johannesburg Water needs to comply with the Preferential Procurement Policy Framework Act (PPPFA) on the subject of sub-contracting. To have sub-contractors registered with CSD is also a requirement by the National Treasury.

The Central Supplier Database keeps up a database of associations, organizations, and people who can give products and services to the government. Service Providers keen on doing business with the South African government are urged to self-register on the Central Supplier Database. The key priorities of such implementations by government and efforts from Johannesburg Water is to ensure minimal fraud and corrupt practices and to encourage accountability. Another priority includes promoting the empowerment of previously disadvantaged entities and persons.

In order to register with CSD, individuals must have SARS documents (Tax Reference number), CIPC documents, CIDB documents and BBBEE information (if readily available).

The sessions will be held on the following dates and times

  • 30 May 2019 Sophie Masite Chambers Civic Centre – Soweto 09H30 for 10H00 am
  • 19 June 2019 17 Harrison street – JW Head Office 09H30 for 10H00 am
  • 26 June 2019 Lenisia Civic Centre – Lenasia 09H30 for 10H00 am

Ends
