How is SARS procurement governed?

SARS’ Procurement and Supply Chain Management processes are subject to the provisions of;

  • the Public Finance Management Act No.1 of 1999 (PFMA)
  • the Treasury Regulations for departments, trading entities ,constitutional institutions and public entities, 2005 issued in terms of the PFMA
  • the Preferential Procurement Policy Framework Act No. 5 of 2000 (PPPFA)
  • the Preferential Procurement Regulations, 2011 issued in terms of the PPPFA
  • the Supply Chain Management practice notes, instruction notes and circulars issued by National Treasury from time to time
  • SARS’ internal delegations of authority

These guidelines and legislations are incorporated in the SARS Supply Chain Management Policy. This policy sets out the processes and procedures followed by SARS when goods and/or services are procured.

It defines the legal, commercial and ethical parameters by which SARS employees and in particular its supply chain practitioners must conduct supply chain activities within SARS. This policy enables the proper and consistent application of procurement and supply chain management practices across SARS. The policy promotes efficient, transparent, equitable and effective procurement processes so as to achieve optimal value for money in terms of the total cost of ownership of the goods and/or services procured by SARS.
