Register on the CSD to do business with Kouga

Local service providers wishing to do business with Kouga Municipality are urged to register on government’s new Central Supplier Database (CSD).

Kouga Executive Mayor Elza van Lingen said National Treasury had issued new regulations to streamline the manner in which government did business.

“The CSD is the most important change as far as our local businesses are concerned,” she said. “Previously, service providers only needed to be registered on the municipality’s supplier database, but now they have to be registered on the CSD as well.”

She said the new Council wanted to maximise the amount of municipal business being awarded to locals.

“We would, therefore, like to encourage our business sector, including SMMEs and entrepreneurs, to register on both the municipal database and CSD so that we can keep as much business as possible in our area.

“If you are not on both these databases, we cannot legally do business with you,” she cautioned.

The application form to register on the municipality’s database can be downloaded from the municipal website at http://www.kouga.gov.za or contact the municipality’s Supply-Chain Management Office at 042 200 2248.
