RFP: Public Sector Furniture

24 Jun 2020 - 14:00


The Public Preferential Procurement Framework has given provision for some industry or products to be designated for local procurement by government departments and state owned enterprises. The following furniture categories were also designated:

  • School furniture (100%)
  • Office Furniture (85%)
  • Bedding & Mattress (90%)

This provides a potential market for manufacturers which can be further exploited. A lot of awareness and/or education is still needed with procuring officials and a tighten system to enforce the provision. The main objectives of this exercise is to develop a comprehensive furniture specification document, that has all the office designated furniture that is available locally or that can be manufactured locally and to further guide the procuring entities of available alternative products. The document will be used as a guide for government and state-owned enterprises to go on tender.

For more details, and information on the deliverables, conditions, submission and evaluation processes etc., please read the RFP terms of reference.

Proposals must be submitted by email to by WEDNESDAY 15TH JULY 2020 at 17H00, using subject line: "IGP RFP 05 - Public Sector Furniture".
