Gauteng Provincial Legislature (GPL) has a Supply Change Management process in place. This ensures that we procure goods and services in a fair, economical, cost-effective and transparent manner. This process follows the following stages:
- Demand management
- Acquisition management
- Logistics management
- Disposal management
- Performance Management
- Vendor Management
GPL procures goods below R500 000 using the three-quote system. Here, companies on the GPL Vendor Database and/or Centralised Supplier Database will be asked directly to quote for goods or services. Click here for details on how to register on the database.
GPL procures goods and services above R500 000 through the tendering/bidding system. This system is used for all service contracts as well as all goods required above R500 000. GPL advertises bids through the media, the GPL website and the Government Tender Bulletin/Gazette.
Registering on the GPL Vendor Database does not mean that you will receive a bid. We advertise bids across the province to attract wide responses. Companies on the GPL Vendor Database and/or Centralised Supplier Database are only approached when the three-quote system is applied.
GPL applies the Financial Management of Parliament and Provincial Legislatures Act No.10 of 2009 (FAMPLA) system as well as the GPL Supply Chain Management Policy and the legislative frameworks governing procurement.
Suppliers are paid within 30 days of receipt of invoice. The 15th and 30th of each month are set aside for such payments. SMMEs could benefit from pay periods less than 30 days.
