I am going out on a limb here.
The Nelson Mandela Bay Metro in terms of the Municipal Finance Management Act is very good in publishing the names of bidders in respect of advertised competitive bids, above the threshold value of R 200,000 (All applicable taxes included).
On 13 August 2014 a large number of business submitted bids for the Construction of Sidewalks and Cycle Paths in our fair city (Bid reference SCM 15-5/C).
All tenderers are evaluated mainly on BBBEE Status, Total Price of Bids and Local percentage content of goods offered.
What always interests me is that here we see companies bidding for fairly large contracts but if you do a search for them in the MyPE Business Directory or even on Google or Bing or social media sites for that matter you will NOT find any form of online presence for them.
Try for yourself – click on each or any of the business names above or from the comprehensive list below to see if you can find them on MyPE. Then try your search on other search engines and social media sites.
Hint – MyPE has a handy function on all search pages that allows you to complete your search on these sites: Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Bing or Google – ...........
