National Treasury Circular No 3 of 2015/16 Central Supplier Database Registration (CSD) W&RSETA and CSD Integration

Purpose of the circular is to inform Public Entities listed in Schedule 3 to the PFMA, 1999 (Act No.1 of 1999) about National Treasury’s single platform, the Central Supplier Database (CSD) for the registration of prospective suppliers including the verification functionality of key supplier information. With effect from 1 July 2017, the W&RSETA Public Entities in Schedule 3 hereby inform all suppliers of the CSD Integration process. The W&RSETA will therefore no longer accept any CSD Summary reports for uploads onto the W&RSETA Supplier Database. Request for CSD summary registration will only occur through the expression of RFP/ RFI or RFB. We thank all suppliers for their continued support and adherence to the PMFA and Legislative Circulars and Instruction Notes.
