ENTERPRISE & SUPPLIER DEVELOPMENT

brdr2

Enterprise & Supplier development is the fourth element that an entity is measured on. 

KEY MEASUREMENT PRINCIPLES

  • The Enterprise and Supplier Development consist of,
    • Preferential Procurement; and
    • Enterprise Development and Supplier Development.
    • Enterprise Development and Supplier Development Contributions will be recognised as a percentage of annual Net Profit After Tax (NPAT).

SUBMINIMUM AND DISCOUNTING PRINCIPLE 

  • A Measured Entity must achieve a minimum of 40% of each of the targets set out on 2.1, 2.2 and 2.3 excluding bonus points of the Enterprise and Supplier Development Scorecard.
  • Non-compliance to the threshold targets will result in the overall achieved B-BBEE status level being discounted in accordance with paragraph 3.4 in statement 000.

An Empowering Supplier within a context of B-BBEE is a B-BBEE compliant entity, which is a good citizen South African entity, comply with all regulatory requirements of the country and should meet at least three if it is a large enterprise or one if it is a QSE of the following criteria:

(a)  At least 25% of cost of sales excluding labour cost and depreciation must be procured from local producers or local supplier in SA, for service industry labour cost are included but capped to 15%.

(b)   Job creation – 50% of jobs created are for Black people provided that the number of Black employees  since the immediate prior verified B-BBEE Measurement is maintained.

(c) At least 25% transformation of raw material/beneficiation which include local manufacturing, production and/or assembly, and/or packaging.

(d) Skills transfer – at least spend 12 days per annum of productivity deployed in assisting Black EMEs and QSEs beneficiaries to increase their operation or financial capacity.

Exempted Micro Enterprises and Start-Ups are .automatically recognised as Empowering Suppliers.

If a Measured Entity procures goods and services from a supplier that is:

  • A  recipient of supplier development contributions from a Measured Entity under Code series 400 has a minimum 3 year contract with the Measured Entity, the recognisable B-BBEE Procurement Spend that can be attributed to that Supplier is multiplied by a factor of 1.2;
  • A black owned QSE or EME which is not a supplier development beneficiary but that has a minimum 3 year contract with the Measured Entity, the recognisable B-BBEE Procurement Spend that can be attributed to that Supplier is multiplied by a factor of 1.2;
  • A first time supplier to the Measured Entity, the recognisable B-BBEE Procurement Spend that can be attributed to that Supplier is multiplied by a factor of 1.2.

Procurement of goods and services and any other activities that fall under PREFERENTIAL PROCUREMENT will not qualify for scoring under ENTERPRISE DEVELOPMENT and SUPPLIER DEVELOPMENT and vice versa.

Beneficiaries of Supplier Development and Enterprise Development are EMEs or QSEs which are at least 51% black owned or at least 51% black women owned.

GENERAL PRINCIPLES

  • To strengthen local procurement in order to help build South Africa’s industrial base in critical sectors of production and value adding manufacturing, which are largely labour-intensive industries.
  • To increase local procurement through capacity building achieved by incentivising appropriate local supplier development programmes by businesses supplying imported goods and services.
  • The imports provisions do not apply to the designated sectors and products for local production, as and when published.
  • To actively support procurement from black owned QSEs and EMEs by identifying opportunities to increase procurement from local suppliers in order to support employment creation.
  • To support procurement from black owned and black women owned businesses in order to increase the participation of these businesses in the main stream economy.
  • To promote the use of black owned professional service providers and entrepreneurs as suppliers.
  • Measured      Entities      receive      recognition Development and Supplier  Development for any Enterprise Contributions  that  are quantifiable as a monetary value using a Standard Valuation Method.
  • Measured Entities are  encouraged to align their Enterprise Development and Supplier Development initiatives with the designated sectors of government’s localisation and value adding programmes.
  • Measured Entities are encouraged to align their enterprise development and supplier development initiatives with their supply chain requirements thereby linking Enterprise  Development and Supplier Development with Preferential Procurement.
  • Qualifying Enterprise Development and Supplier Development Contributions of any Measured Entity are recognisable on an annual basis.
  • Contributions, programmes and/or initiatives that span over multiple years, the total contribution amount must be divided by the number of years, and the average per year is then to be utilised for the annual contribution.
  • Measured Entities are encouraged to develop and implemented an Enterprise Development plan and Supplier Development plan for Qualifying Beneficiaries. The plan should include:
    • Priority interventions
    • Key performance indicators; and
    • A concise implementation plan with clearly articulated milestones.
  • Measured Entities will not get recognition for the same activities undertaken under 2.2 and 2.3, they will only get recognition for one of the two i.e. 2.2 or 2.3
  • No portion of the value of any Qualifying Enterprise Development and Supplier Development Contribution that is payable to the beneficiary after the date of measurement can form part of any calculation under this statement.

MEASUREMENT OF B-BBEE PROCUREMENT SPEND

  • B-BBEE Procurement Spend is the value of the procurement falling within paragraph 5 and not excluded by paragraph6. If a supplier falls within a category of supplier listed in paragraph 3.5, the value of procurement from that supplier is multiplied by the applicable factor listed in that paragraph.
  • B-BBEE Procurement Spend can be measured in terms of formula “A” in Annexe 400(A).
  • The B-BBEE Procurement Spend for a Measured Entity in respect of a supplier is calculated by multiplying the spend contemplated by paragraph 5 (and not excluded by paragraph 6) in respect of that supplier by the supplier’s B-BBEE Recognition Level.
  • A Measured Entity’s Total Procurement Spend is the total of all amounts calculated in terms of paragraph 7.3.

THE CALCULATION OF PREFERENTIAL PROCUREMENT CONTRIBUTIONS TO B-BBEE

  • A measured Entity receives a score for procurement in proportion to the extent that it meets the compliance target.
  • The Measured Entity’s score for Preferential Procurement contributions to B-BBEE under the preferential procurement scorecard can be calculated in terms of formula “B” in Annexe 400(A).
