Right to Care sources product and services from suppliers on an ad hoc basic but suppliers should not see this as preferred method for getting business from Right to Care. Rather, on an annual basis, Right to Care appoint suppliers to be preferred suppliers. The duration of the appointment is a maximum of one year.
To ensure the process of appointing preferred suppliers is fair and is open to a majority of suppliers, requests for services are advertised in diverse media. When this process is completed, appointed suppliers are invited to sign a service level agreement and are loaded on Right to Care’s supplier database. These preferred suppliers are then responsible to servicing Right to Care for a period 12 months, after which they are given an opportunity to bid for the following year.
The criteria to become a preferred supplier are:
- Price to be competitive and market related
- BEE verification
- Professional company profile
- Company registration documents
- Compliance certificates
- Letter from the bank
- Reference letters from previously serviced clients
- Geographical areas that can be serviced
From time to time, invitations to tender are advertised in the media. Any supplier may submit a tender application, even if it is not a preferred supplier.
Contractors working at Right to Care are required to sign an undertaking of confidentiality.
