Government wants to change SA tender laws

The National Treasury is seeking public comments into the recently published Draft Public Procurement Bill.

The draft bill proposes a single regulatory framework for procurement applicable to national, provincial and local government, as well as state owned entities.

In a statement last Wednesday, Treasury said once the bill becomes law, it will eliminate fragmentation in the laws that deal with public sector procurement.

“The Bill creates a more flexible preferential procurement regime and enables the Minister of Finance, after consulting responsible Ministers, to prescribe a framework for preferential procurement.

 “To advance economic opportunities for previously disadvantaged people, specific provision is made for women; the youth and people with disabilities; small businesses; locally produced goods, including local technology and its commercialisation,” it said.


Members are encouraged to submit their comments directly to CommentDraftLegislation© by 31 May 2020.

Listed valuations a complex but exciting space



The CBE Act impels the CBE to, after consultation with the Competition Commission (CC) and in consultation with the Councils for the Built Environment Professions (CBEP), identify the scope of work for each category of registration (section 21 of the CBE Act). The consultation with the CC was conducted. The CBE is keen to continuously engage the CC on the process of regulating the built environment professions. The CBE will also seek collaboration with the CC on the development and communication of an advocacy position on the regulation on the built environment professions.

The scope of work for categories of registration of the property valuers profession

Valuation has always played an important role in property, particularly in the listed sector where so many different parties have interests at stake. In the current economic environment, there is increasing pressure on valuers across all spheres of valuation - but particularly in listed property - to provide clients with information not just on the value of an asset today, but on how it is expected to perform going forward. Patrick O'Connell, operations director of Spectrum Valuations and Asset Solutions, tells Asset his views on the subject.

After we had completed the formalities and before lunch, the mentees surprised the committee members (and seriously humbled us).

They presented gifts to each of us (the KZN Branch Executives who are acting as Mentors) AND for the GM Office personnel (Lerato & Anne-Marie) AND for Robbie Roper.

This was the appreciation for the efforts being made to set up the programme on their behalf.

 SAIV Bursary recipient graduates Cum Laude
  Elevation to Fellow Member
  I had no idea what I wanted to do when I left school, so I did a secretarial course.  Fast forward a few years and I ended up working as a personal assistant to a Property Valuer.  I found the work interesting and was blessed to be able to go out with my mentor, Colin Douglas, to inspect properties and attend meetings.  At the age of 45, after my children had become teenagers, I decided it was time to study and I registered for my ND Real Estate at CPUT (Cape Peninsula University of Technology) on a part time basis.  
It was going to be a serious juggle on two counts : firstly with time as I work full-time, and with having to run a household, look after my sick mother, and lift children to and from school ; and secondly on the financial side.  Little did I know that someone had put me forward as a candidate to receive a bursary through the SAIV!  It was too much to hope for and I only really believed it when I got my confirmation letter. What a blessing that was – I’m incredibly grateful!
It was a phenomenal experience attending classes, and meeting fellow like-minded students from all walks of life.  The lecturers were great (some younger than me) and supportive too.
At the end of the first year, I’d finished 3 of my 12 subjects and received an A for each subject – I was thrilled!  I managed to obtain a bursary from the SAIV for my remaining 3 years of part time studies, and graduated in December 2019 with my ND Real Estate certificate (Cum Laude).  I had hoped to do the work school and write my Valuers exam this year, but that is probably a tad optimistic.  However, things have a way of working out if they’re meant to be.

Congratulations to Tracey Myers on her elevation to Fellow Member.

Tracey has been dedicated to the Valuation profession for over 20 years. Her involvement has culminated in the growth of the profession and in learning and development amongst valuers. She has provided lectures at the SACPVP Workschool, has lectured to undergraduate and post graduate students at WITS University, University of Pretoria and University of Johannesburg. She has also provided lectures for a number of institutions such as RICS and SAPOA. Tracey has served on the Services SETA Real Estate Chamber and currently serves on the Council for the Built Environment Appeal Board. She was recently nominated in the category ‘Professional of the Year’ by the Women’s Property Network Professional.

Thank you Tracey for your continued hard work and dedication to the profession and the Institute.
