Public procurement localisation

This intervention designates minimum procurement localisation requirements for solar water heater components. Effective 17 June 2014, solar water heater components procured by the South African government entity must contain a local content value of 70% or more.

Under the procurement rules of 2011, the South African Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), alongside the National Treasury, has the power

r to designate specific sectors in where public procurement bids have to comply with a set of local production requirements stipulated minimum. 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 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.
