Introducing BEE Procured - My Procurement
In order to meet
BEE requirements to earn full points for procurement, your company must
keep track of each supplier and their BEE score. Each supplier should
provide a valid BEE certificate. The certificate must be renewed each
year and this data must be recorded annually. While many suppliers do
have valid BEE certificates, each needs to be checked to ensure they
are correct and not misrepresenting their score. The many suppliers that
do not have a valid certificate need to be reminded and encouraged to
obtain a certificate.
Procured is a massive database of BEE compliant suppliers built up over
5 years containing thousands of companies with certificates.
Each scorecard for each company has been analysed based on the score,
recognition level, black ownership, black female ownership, value adding
status, rated date, expiry date, type of supplier and has an
electronic copy of the certificate uploaded.
The more suppliers’ scorecards you have the more points you can claim on your BEE profile under the procurement element.
How to Optimise BEE Procurement
The best way to maximize your procurement score is to evaluate all suppliers based on year-to-date procurement spend.
My Procurement section of BEE Procured is a powerful
system that links your supplier’s spend with suppliers’ BEE
credentials that are available on our database. In this way a company
can quickly evaluate their Preferential Procurement using 100% accurate
data without having to phone for certificates. My Procurement also
allows a quick import and update facility to import new suppliers or
instantly update existing supplier data. This will allow you to
calculate procurement on a month by month basis.
My Procurement will calculate your preferential procurement score when you want it.
My Procurement will give you a report on your compliant and non-compliant suppliers.
My Procurement saves time in contacting suppliers, obtaining certificates and analysing scorecards.
My Procurement produces a verification ready spreadsheet.
Time wasted… not any more… BEE Procured is constantly building on its scorecard database.
Over time Preferential Procurement can become a very costly exercise –
hundreds of telephone calls and faxes, dedicated support staff and the
recurring management problem associated with a large database. My
Procurement will supply you with a facility to effectively manage your
entire supplier database. You need only email and phone when required
or view a series of reports that guide you through the procurement
There are instances where suppliers simply do not respond to your calls
or emails. Through the BEE Procured database we can pool buying power
when requesting a BEE Certificate. Through the management interface of
BEE Procured you can effectively pick out suppliers who have not
responded and create a series of file notes.
In 2012, the targets increase
BEE Procurement targets are increasing in 2012. Any scorecard produced
after 9th February 2012 will have to use the new targets which go up
from 50% to 70% for all suppliers, and by similar amounts for the other
Even companies that have reached targets in 2010
or 2011 will have to do a lot more work if they want to remain at the
same BEE compliant level in 2012.

BEE Procured will help calculate and maximize your BEE procurement points.
The old way of doing procurement - You would spend
hours/days/weeks/ even months on the phone to suppliers
asking/begging/cajoling them for their scorecard. If they did send the
scorecard, it was filed in a file until year-end.
Once a year you would try to get a list of all your suppliers and
spend with them, and try to make a spreadsheet of all suppliers/spend.
You would then have to build a spreadsheet, taking into account all the
elements of that scorecard: Expiry date, EME/QSE generic, value adding
enterprise, black ownership, female black ownership.
The BEE Procured Way
BEE Procured manages virtually the entire BEE process. All you do is
capture or import your entire supplier list and spend, link to a master
record (which takes seconds per supplier) and the job is done. Many BEE
Procured users are doing their procurement calculation throughout the
year by capturing year to date spend. Each month they import the new
year to date figures and the system automatically updates all
calculations. There is not even a need to re-link suppliers that have
already been linked to the master record.
BEE Procured produces an easy to understand procurement list and
points calculation. It even shows suppliers that do not have a
scorecard, and it is easy to see suppliers that have a low BEE level
that could potentially cost you BEE points. This will help you optimise
your score by homing in on important or large suppliers to encourage
them to also get a BEE scorecard.
The BEE Procured system carries a comprehensive database of scorecards that is regularly updated and expanded.
