The tender training workshop would become a beehive of activity

The times are changing very fast. The days of the manual submission of Government tenders are over. This is the age of the internet. The Government in South Africa is keen on changing the mode of calling for and submission of tenders. The National Development Plan (NDP) envisages an all round growth leading to the SMMEs becoming the top source of generating income for the country by the year 2030. The endeavor would require huge changes in the present system. The Government is committed to rooting out corruption and favoritism in the procedure of calling for tenders and awarding Government contracts.

The Government would not be able to bring in all the changes on its own. They have to rope in the assistance of third parties such as Opentenders.com for educating the SMMEs and train them in the nuances of submitting the online tenders. With this plan in mind, the Company has come out with a training program whereby they would cover every aspect of the inline tender bidding process. This method could have its typical legal conflicts as well. This course covers these aspects in detail.

Every SMME is eligible to send its representative for acquiring the requisite training. The training would be a comprehensive one catering to every aspect of online tender bidding. Some of the salient features of the course are as follows.

The SMME would get access to the Central Supplier Database that could prove of tremendous use to them. They course envisages the methods of responding to the “Request for Quotes,” “Request for Proposal,” and the “Request for Information.” This training would be very useful for the SMMEs. Every ruling could have legal implications. This one has its own. The course deals with the legal issues one could encounter during the process. One of the lectures pertains to the Standard Bid Declarations. The course could make you understand the new BBBEE codes as well. They teach you the intricacies of Bid Adjudication and scoring. The main aspect of submitting the tenders would be setting the appropriate price. This course teaches you the details of costing and explains the modalities of arriving at the appropriate price. One more aspect of these activities would be arranging for finances and scouting for suppliers. Naturally, these two aspects would make their presence after the awarding of the tender. However, one shou
ld have knowledge of the same. This exhaustive course could benefit the SMME in a great manner.

The advantage of online bidding is that it eliminates the issue of favoritism. The computer does not have emotions. Hence, it would make the most rational decision based on the quotes alone. You cannot force a computer to give a result in your favor by offering bribes etc. This would result in a great deal of transparency. In this way, the Government would encourage the growth of the SMME. This would indirectly spur the growth of the economy. Starting in a phased manner, the South African Government aims to achieve complete success before 2030.
