Public procurement localisation

This intervention designates minimum procurement localisation requirements for various sectors in South Africa. Effective 16 July 2012, the following sectors steel procured by the South African government entity must contain varying local content values, ranging from of 65%-100%:

·       Rail rolling rock

·       Busses and busses’ bodies

·       Steel power pylons

·       Canned and processed vegetables

·      Textile, clothing, leather and footwear sectors

Under the procurement rules of 2011, the South African Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), alongside the National Treasury, has the power to designate specific sectors in where public procurement bids have to comply with a set of local production requirements stipulated minimum (see related measure). Such minimums vary by sector. If raw materials or input are not available to produce such products, bidders must obtain written authorization of the DTI to import such materials.

Any organ of the state may also choose to establish a local manufacturing minimum for non-designated sectors. Such minimums must follow the DTI and the National Treasury’s directives and consult with them beforehand.

Such minimums may include small variations amongst the percentage of a minimum required depending on the length of the public procurement contract.
