Closed: Open Procurement doors competition 2023


You dream of landing that major contract that will ‘set your business for easier sailing!’ However, it's daunting to try to navigate the procurement process as a supplier. Tax compliance, tender completions, broad-based black economic empowerment, proof of financial health, proof of capacity and pricing – it is administratively intensive and requires a delicate balance of getting your compliance in order and your presentation skills up to scratch.

In reality, not having your financials up to date and compliance documents ready for inspection is like scoring an own goal, but we know that sorting out administration is not exactly what makes many of us hop out of bed with glee.


This offer is exclusive to Nedbank small-business clients who want to break through procurement barriers to become suppliers of choice. You could be one of 30 business owners who will attend this specially curated live online course and receive business-specific coaching.

Give your business a shot at experiencing a positive change.
