Get you suppliers on the central database
On the go-live date, you will only be able to procure from the suppliers that are registered and verified on the central database. As such, it is critical to ensure that current suppliers utilised, get registered. If you have an electronic supplier database, you need to migrate them to the central database. If not, click here to view how CSDprocure can assist you with this process.
Align your SCM
The current Supply Chain Management processes, procedures and systems need to be aligned to the new SCM legislation to ensure that only registered and verified suppliers are used. This includes appropriate controls, in terms of verification, at the relevant stages of the processes. This is required as the verification is real time and a supplier verified now, might not be verified later.
Procure off the central database
Depending on the types of procurement procedures utilised, the new SCM legislation has an impact on how these are implemented. The central database is not a procurement tool. For example, for Request for Quotations, suppliers must be selected from the central database on a rotational basis. These implications need to be considered to comply.
