Central Supplier Database

Currently no single consolidated comprehensive supplier database exists for national, provincial or local government causing duplication and fragmentation of supplier information across spheres of government. In addition, information related to the compliance requirements are duplicated during procurement processes, processing of payments and audit procedures, which are all examples of financial management activities dependent on supplier information.

The establishment of a Central Supplier Database (CSD) will result in one single database to serve as the source of all supplier information for all spheres of government. The purpose of centralising government’s supplier database is to reduce duplication of effort and cost for both supplier and government while enabling electronic procurement processes.
