CCI supplier database registration


Centre for Communication Impact’s (CCI’s) Procurement and Procedures require that we establish an approved database of preferred suppliers. CCI therefore invites interested service providers to submit proposals to be added onto the Preferred Supplier Database. The intention of CCI is to streamline its processes to ensure effective and efficient expenditure control within its supply chain, whilst ensuring that CCI meets its service delivery goals.  CCI is therefore calling on service providers in the fields below to provide company profiles, (including tax clearance certificates, and any other relevant documents as detailed below).  Qualifying suppliers will be added to the CCI supplier database.  Please note that existing suppliers are also required to resubmit to be considered for the new financial year.

CCI is governed by its Procurement and Financial Policies and Procedures, the relevant legislation, and general conditions of contract when sourcing quotations and/or bids from prospective suppliers.  CCI reserves the right to have a list of prospective suppliers and to utilise these suppliers on a rotational and needs-based basis.

General Conditions for Applicants

  • It should be noted that CCI reserves the right to accept or reject any application made by a prospective supplier.
  • CCI reserves the right to verify any information contained in the applicant’s submitted documents through internal vetting processes. Any discrepancies which may arise during this process may result in the applicant being unsuccessful.
  • Applicants who have failed to submit the minimum requirements will not be considered.
  • All relevant attachments must be attached to the email along with the rest of the required documents.

Conditions on Successful Registration

  • Once successfully registered as a Preferred Supplier, a service provider will be subjected to regular performance reviews and could be deregistered if the required service levels are not met.
  • Registered suppliers will be contacted by CCI telephonically and or via email for the sourcing of quotations. It is therefore imperative that all applicants submit correct contact details.  CCI may choose to verify this information during the pre-screening and verification process of an application.
  • The onus shall rest upon the applicant to inform CCI of any changes to the status and or information of their business, in which case certified proof together with a new supplier database registration form and attached documents will be required to effect the changes.
  • CCI will not be liable for any consequence whatsoever which may arise due to the failure of an applicant to update their information on the database when any change occurs in the business information which affects this registration.
  • It is important for all applicants to note that the successful registration on the CCI supplier database will not guarantee the applicant any business opportunities.
  • Preferred suppliers are reviewed and renewed annually, and the same process of registration may be followed.
