The one-day workshop seeks to respond to questions about the new regulation and to further provide guidance and illumination on how departments, municipalities and various government entities can subscribe to and implement the Preferential Procurement Regulation.

The new regulation is not a replacement for the existing BBBE, which is still an Act, but it is rather an additional mechanism to foster the transformation agenda within the prescripts of the law.

The purpose of this policy is to provide for the advancement of persons or categories of persons disadvantaged by unfair discrimination; In this instance, the specific goals are as contemplated in section 2(1)(d) of the Act, which may include contracting with persons, or categories of persons, historically disadvantaged by unfair discrimination on the basis of race, gender and disability including the implementation of programmes of the Reconstruction and Development Programme as published in Government Gazette No. 16085 dated 23 November 1994.

Free State province remains very passionate about transformation and therefore welcomes this training workshop on Preferential Procurement Regulation 2022, which will further empower the provincial administration in achieving its objectives.
