Welcome to TenderBulletins.co.za, where we keep the South African public and business community updated with Open Tenders issued by the South African Government, Provincial governments, Municipalities and State owned Enterprises, as well as other universities and other educational entities and private companies.
A request for tenders (RFT) is a formal, structured invitation to suppliers to submit a bid to supply products or services. In the public sector an official fee is needed to fortify and secure the tender bid engagement/win documents, such a process may be required and determined in detail by law to ensure that such competition for the use of public funds is open, fair and free from bribery and nepotism. For example, a government may put a building project ‘out to tender’; that is, publish an invitation for other parties to make a proposal for the building’s construction, on the understanding that any competition for the relevant government contract must be conducted in response to the tender, no parties having the unfair advantage of separate, prior, closed-door negotiations for the contract. An evaluation team will go through the tenders and decide who will get the contract.
The Tender Bulletins in our database contain tenders from all over South Africa. We scan all applicable websites and sources of information and deliver tenders in a uniform format with information such as Closing date, Briefing date, Contact information, Tender documentation, Location, Category and Department/Company.
