The University of Pretoria functions on a decentralised procurement system with an oversight function and certain centralised activities performed by the Procurement Division in the Department of Finance.
The University of Pretoria has an extensive database of existing suppliers who have served the institution in the past. As a result, no new suppliers will be registered unless the product/service is unique or exceptional circumstances exist to appoint a new supplier. The application for supplier registration must, therefore, indicate the University department or faculty interested in using the services of the relevant supplier. The process of supplier evaluation before registration of new suppliers aims to support the endeavours of the University regarding preferential procurement and to comply with the Codes of Good Practice on Broad Based Black Economic Empowerment (BBBEE).
For a new supplier registration to be processed, the prescribed documentation must be completed and submitted in hard copy accompanied by the mandatory documents requested and the company profile. Once appointed by a University department or faculty for the provision of goods or services, enquiries regarding the registration process may be directed to the Procurement Division, University of Pretoria on 012 420 5940/5489 or firstname.lastname@example.org
