CDS Registration Notification

Published on Nov 27, 2015

Register on the Central Supplier Database for Government managed by National Treasury

It has recently come to our attention that with effect from 1 April 2016 the Central Supplier Database (CSD) will serve as the single source of key supplier information for all spheres of government providing consolidated, accurate, up-to-date, complete and verified supplier information to procuring organs of state.

The establishment of a 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.

Prospective suppliers interested in pursuing opportunities within the South African Government and those that are already registered on the GMA supplier database are encouraged to self-register on the CSD. This self-registration application represents an expression of interest from the supplier to conduct business with the South African Government. Once submitted, your details will be assessed for inclusion on the CSD.
