In terms of SITA Regulation 10.1 different Departments define repetitive requirements across Government through the conclusion of appropriate transversal term contracts and SITA on behalf of the State will facilitate the process of publishing such requests.
As per the procurement plan SITA will have defined commodities to be published on the financial year, but there are no specific dates for approval. Service Providers are requested to continually visit SITA website for such opportunities as SITA does not have a view of the possible candidates to respond for each commodity. To onboard Service Providers on Transversal contracts you are requested to continually check www.sita.co.za/tenders; Government tender bulletin and Treasury website for all published requirements.
These are the currently running contracts. There are also other commodities that are on the pipeline as published on SITA website, see Technology domains as published on SITA website, also paragraph 9 below.
|OEM: Provision of Personal Computers, mobile devices and services
|Reseller: Provision of Personal Computers, mobile devices and services
|Reseller: Provision Of Peripherals, Consumables And Services
|OEM: Provision Of Peripherals, Consumables And Services
|Provision of Servers and Storage equipment, Solutions and Services
SITA does not certify or register Service Providers, all RFBs and RFQs are published on SITA website under tenders and RFQs. Panels are published on www.sita.co.za/tenders; Government tender bulletin and Treasury website for all published requirements.
The requests are published via email on selected Suppliers from Central Supplier Database.
All published tender documents under enquiry includes the details of the contact person facilitating the specific tender or RFQ.
For Transversal term contracts, Service Providers will upload the published documents on SITA website and submit to a respective SITA office in your Province e.g you live in Limpopo, you submit in SITA Limpopo Office
There are no forms provided in order for Service Providers to participate on Transversal term contracts. SITA must comply with Section 217 of the Constitution, which requires that when an organ of state contracts for goods and services, it must do so in accordance with principles of fairness, equitability, transparency, competitiveness and cost-effectiveness. The list for OEMs that are currently accredited under the contracts are published under Transversal contracts 2005/2015 and 2007/2015 on SITA website (www.sita.co.za) Service Providers can request letters of accreditation from the respective OEMs..
In terms of the SITA Regulations paragraph 10.4 and National Treasury Practice Note 5 of 2009, SITA must conduct standard certification in respect of goods and/or services.
In support of this, SITA invites OEMs and/or legal entities representing brands to submit their product ranges for certification. This initiative will be done independently of any tender process, and is implemented in support of Government transversal contracts. OEM partners (resellers) will submit bids as part of a tender process, but no technology or product evaluation will form part of the tender process.
Product certification will be done solely in conjunction with OEMs/brand representatives as part of a Technology Certification Process (TCP). The logos below indicate the product brands that have engaged SITA in terms of the TCP.
Technology domains addressed by the TCP include, but are not restricted to:
• Personal Computing Devices: Desktop PCs, Mobile PCs, Desktop displays, and Mobile devices (Tablets, Smartphones, eReaders).
• Peripherals: Printers, Multifunction devices, Scanners, Digital cameras, Auto-ID (Barcoding, Card devices), Optical storage (DVD duplicators), Small peripherals and Consumables.
• Servers & Storage: Servers (Rack-mount, Tower, Blade), Primary storage and Secondary storage (Tape, D2D, Archiving).
• Audiovisual Communications Technologies (AVCT): Video and audio conferencing, largeformat display devices (projectors, AV monitors and video walls), interactive whiteboards, collaboration, media recording, AV signal control and management.
• Networking: Switches, WLAN, Routers, Backhaul, Cabling (copper and fibre).
• Infrastructure: UPS, Equipment Racks, Generators, Cable ducting, trenching and routing.
• Assistive Technologies: Assistive devices and software for people with disabilities, including smart devices (tablets, PDAs, readers, media players, recorders and braille devices) and peripherals (input and output devices) developed for users with disabilities
Forms and documentation to initiate the process can be downloaded below. Technical specifications and supporting documents are available for download in the Technology Domains table.
The Technology Certification Process will be conducted on a continuous basis and will seek to include new OEMs, products and/or categories as and when they enter the market.
All TCP-related forms, Technical Specifications (including Tech Updates) and other documents Page 4 of 4 are available below.
