In the 2015 budget speech, the Minister of Finance announced the development and future use of the Central Supplier Database (CSD) as a way of simplifying the process of doing business with government.
The Central Supplier Database (CSD) will maintain a database of organisations, institutions and individuals who can provide goods and services to all organs of state. The CSD will reduce the exchange of compliance documents in paper form, eliminate multiple registrations with different organs of state, and ultimately reduce the cost for both business and government by enabling electronic registration and verification processes.
The CSD will interface with the South African Revenue Service (SARS) to verify tax clearance certificates and the Companies and Intellectual Property Commission (CIPC) for business registration and business ownership information. The CSD will furthermore verify supplier information with the register for tender defaulters and database of restricted suppliers.
From 01st July 2016, the CSD will serve as the single source of key supplier information for organs of state.
Prospective suppliers interested in pursuing opportunities within the South African government are encouraged to self-register directly onto the CSD. The self-registration application represents an expression of interest from the supplier to conduct business with Organs of State.
The following information is required to complete the online registration:
- Active Email Address (if not available, you will be assisted in creating an email address);
- Valid Cellphone Number;
- Identity Number;
- Tax Reference Number (if applicable);
- Company Registration Number (if applicable);
- Bank Account Details
The KZN Provincial Treasury endeavours to provide assistance to suppliers with the self-registration process and suppliers who do not have the capacity to register themselves, may visit the Provincial Treasury Database Office situated at: Treasury House, Ground Floor, 145 Chief Albert Luthuli Road, Pietermaritzburg from 08h00-15h00 Mondays to Fridays.
