What is Tender’s Local Content and why it’s important to Small Businesses?

Yesterday an entrepreneur comes to us very unhappy, because his government client wants him to declare what is called “Local Content”, they want to award him a tender to supply some electronic telecommunication equipment, but the problem is that he did not declare this “Local Content” accurately when responding to the request for quotation, this simple mistake now disqualifies him even though his price is the best!

Local Content means how much of the goods you supply will be bought locally, obviously many goods are manufactured overseas, but same time government wants only local goods to boost the local economy, so what do you do? There is ways for you to bypass this government requirement and still get maximum points for your tender bid, even when importing from overseas is discouraged.

The Tender Master Class is a SETA accredited short tendering course about bidding for tenders for corporates, jobseekers and SMMEs, so that when you bid for tenders you do it accurately and effectively and not make mistakes that get you disqualified, but WIN TENDERS!

SANITISER VS SOAP: South African Small Businesses(SMME) CAN continue operating amid coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic


We are not closing during the 21 day lockdown announced by President Cyril Ramaphosa starting on Thursday 26 February 2020 midnight, we assisting the state through funding SMMEs who get awarded urgent tenders and RFQs for the provision of essential goods and services such as groceries and medical products, so they can execute the government orders, and provide much needed products and services to the South African government and her people amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

SMMEs you too can continue operating during South Africa’s lockdown by following the way we work:

  • Practise a correct hygiene protocol, read the 6 steps below on how to protect yourself and your family, share this page on your Whatsapp and social media to your friends and loved ones.


Place clinical hand sanitisers (it must be a minimum 60% alcohol-based sanitiser else won’t kill viruses) at entrances of your workplace, keep in mind, in a test conducted by Dr Oz soap worked better than a sanitiser it is just that hand sanitisers are convenient to use as they do not need water, and you can even keep a small bottle of sanitiser in your pocket or bag while travelling, at home use soap & water to wash your hands regularly, the key thing is regular sanitising or washing of hands with soap and water properly, the water washes away the virus better than a sanitiser, watch the video above to learn how to wash hands properly. All your guests and staff must be required to sanitize on entry of your workplace, and your family members to wash their hands at regular intervals, for example before meals and after using the toilet.


Clean everything at scheduled regular intervals and include the disinfection of frequently used objects and surfaces such as coffee stations, door handles, desks, tables and more.


Practise correct hygiene protocols. Cough and sneeze into your elbow or tissue, frequent washing of hands with soap for min 20 secs and close the tap with hand towel or toilet paper – don’t touch the tap with your clean hands! Avoiding touching one’s face especially mouth, eyes and nose, as these are points of entry for Coronavirus COVID-19, and also avoid shaking hands.


Have tissues placed visibly where guests, staff and family have access to at all times.


Communication is key, forward this email to your loved ones, create Whatsapp groups and update people and your loved ones regularly on the latest news on this COVID-19 pandemic, for SMMEs, place Health and Safety signage in various locations around your office, to inform and educate all staff and guests on correct protocols.


People may experience:

  • runny nose
  • sore throat
  • cough
  • fever
  • difficulty breathing (severe cases) 

They are required to quarantine or isolate themselves and seek advice from their healthcare professional or contact the public hotline (0800 029 999), or Whatsapp say ‘Hi’ to 060 012 3456 or visit www.sacoronavirus.co.za (you can track live stats on infections in South Africa on this government website) before going to a hospital so that you do not infect those at the hospital in case you are infected with coronavirus COVID-19.

The Original Newsletter and Blog Post of September 2019:
We recently assisted Masimini Solutions deliver two container crane machine brake resistor parts from China to Transnet on time, what Masimini Solutions learnt which all SMMEs need to consider when importing goods from overseas is that import duty or tax at the local ports do apply, and in some cases you may need to store your imported heavy equipment for a couple of days at storage, therefore do consider the storage cost, and in this case it was R17 000, and also sometimes your client may need the goods faster so understand your shipping method, i.e. shipping (30 days) or airplanes(2-3 days), we decided to change the shipping method for Masimini Solutions to be airplanes, so when bidding please consider all costs!

How to spot a Request For Quotation/Purchase Order scam easy?

MarketDirect Purchase Order Funding

Spot a Request For Quotation/Purchase Order Scam Easy!

The scammers modus operandi: The fraudulent requests for quotations (“RFQ”) are sent via email to SMEs requesting them to send quotations or to deliver goods. After the submission of a quote by a supplier, communication is then sent to such a supplier, that the quote has been accepted and delivery may take place or goods will be collected from the premises of the supplier.

Typical scams have the following attributes:

How to spot a scam easy?
Pay attention to the email address from which the request for quotation comes from, let me make a real example. An SME recently contacted MarketDirect Purchase Order Funding service seeking funding for a purchase order “awarded” by Steve Biko Academic Hospital, we simply saw very easily that it a scam by looking at the email address where it is coming, in this case the email address looked this way.
STEP 1: Copy and to your internet browser the part after the “@” sign, you lend at government website if not it is scam.
Spot a PO SCAM easy

STEP 2: We copied and pasted “doh-govza.org” onto our internet browser and have a look below where that took us:

po scam website domain not government

This website shown above clearly is not of government but it is where the scam artists registered their website, “doh-govza.org“, and is not like any of the real department of health website which usually end with “.gov.za” for instance “health.go.za“.

There you have it! A simple test to see if the Request For Quotation (RFQ) or Purchase Order(PO) you receive via email is scam or real, simply take the part after “@” symbol of an email address the RFQ is coming from and put it on your internet web browser it should lead you to a real government website!
