Supply Chain Management

Overview

The Bitou Municipality has and implements a Supply Chain Management Policy in terms of Section 111 of the Municipal Finance Management Act, No 56 of 2003 (the Act), that: (a) gives effect to – (i) Section 217 of the Constitution; and (ii) Part 1 of Chapter 11 and other applicable provisions of the Act; (b) is fair, equitable, transparent, competitive and cost effective; (c) complies with – (i) the Supply Chain Management Regulations; and (ii) any minimum norms and standards that may be prescribed in terms of section 168 of the Act; (d) is consistent with other applicable legislation; (e) does not undermine the objective for uniformity in supply chain management systems between organs of state in all spheres; and (f) is consistent with national economic policy concerning the promotion of investments and doing business with the public sector. (g) applies the highest ethical standards; (h) promotes local economic development; and (i) assigns responsibility for the implementation of the policy to the Accounting Officer of the Municipality.

Supply Chain Management Unit

  1. In terms of Regulation 7(1) the Accounting Officer must establish a Supply Chain Management Unit to implement this Policy.
  2. The supply chain management unit operates under the direct supervision of the Chief Financial Officer, who duly delegated this duty to the Manager: Supply Chain Management in terms of Section 82 of the MFMA.
  3. The officials in the SCM Unit has received training in terms of National Treasury requirements and their behaviour are subject to a Code of Ethics for SCM Practitioners.

 

What are the objectives of the SCM Unit?

  1. Ensure that procurement processes are fair, equitable, transparent, competitive, cost effective and consistent with the Supply Chain Management Policy.
  2. Ensure that goods and services are delivered to the right place, in the right quantity, with the right quality, at the right cost and at the right time.
  3. Promote consistency in respect of SCM policy and other related initiatives in Government.
  4. Give effect to the provisions of the Constitution.
  5. Give effect to the provisions of the MFMA.

 

How can I do business with the BITOU Municipality?

  1. In terms of the Municipal Supply Chain Management Regulations 14(1) (a)(i), a municipality must have and maintain a list of accredited prospective providers.
  2. The Municipality must use this list when goods and or services are required through verbal, written or formal written price quotations.
  3. The Bitou Municipality will use the National Treasury Central Supplier Database (CSD) as a platform from 1st of June 2016 and all suppliers and service providers who intends doing business with the Bitou Municipality, must be registered on the CSD.
  4. The benefits for the private sector includes:
    • The reduction of red tape and administrative effort when doing business with the Municipality.
    • Compliance requirements will be easy to meet for suppliers that are in good standing on the various compliance requirements. The CSD will have interfaces to South African Revenue Service (SARS) to enable tax clearance status verification of suppliers throughout the Procure-to-Pay process as well as the Companies and Intellectual Property Commission (CIPC) for vetting of business registration and business ownership.
    • No proof of documentation is necessary. The CSD will electronically validate and authenticate all information.
    • Your entity will be issued with a unique CSD number (MAAA………), which must be used as a reference for future quotations, tenders and orders.
    • Eliminate duplication of compliance requirements and reduce duplication of effort and cost for both business and government.
    • This uniform Supply Chain Management system used right through all government institutions is essential to optimise the efficiency of service delivery.
  5. New suppliers will have the option to make use of the self-registration portal of the CSD and suppliers who are currently registered on the Western Cape Suppliers Database (WCSD) will be automatically transferred to the Central Supplier Database by 31 March 2016.
  6. However, current legislation still demands that municipalities verify information such as the municipal accounts, vehicle registration and acceptability certificates (caterers) of suppliers. This is not included in the system because it does not apply to the National and Provincial regulations. Therefore, unless these requirements are retracted, suppliers will still be vetted by municipalities in addition to the Central Supplier Database.
IN THE INTERIM: PLEASE ENSURE THAT YOU ARE REGISTERED ON THE WESTERN CAPE SUPPLIER DATABASE (WCSD) AND THAT YOUR STATUS IS ACTIVE! Direct enquiries to the Western Cape Supplier Database Helpdesk
