All municipalities will have to work through the Central Supplier Database as of 1 July 2016. Updating and/or amendments will be the responsibility of the vendor.
The Central Supplier Database maintains a database of organisations, institutions and individuals who can provide goods and services to government. The CSD will serve as the single source of key supplier information for organs of state from 01 April 2016 providing consolidated, accurate, up-to-date, complete and verified supplier information to procuring organs of state.
Prospective suppliers interested in pursuing opportunities within the South African government are encouraged to self-register on the Central Supplier Database. This self-registration application represents an expression of interest from the supplier to conduct business with the South African government. Once submitted, your details will be assessed for inclusion on the Central Supplier Database.
All suppliers will be required to complete required information on the CSD website – https://secure.csd.gov.za. They must ensure it is complete, accurate and comprehensive.
A valid email address, identity number, cell phone number and bank account details are mandatory in order to register on the CSD. Apart from the above, it is foreseen that B-BBEE information will be included in the CSD.
Any queries can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org or 012 406 9222.
