3.6 Preferential Procurement

3.6.1 Guiding Principle Our guiding principle is to use the significant purchasing power of the rail parastatals to develop and support existing BEE companies in the sector and make deliberate attempts to identify new entrants, particularly in areas such heavy engineering and maintenance, which have traditionally excluded black people. A key area of focus will be to identify areas where there is relatively little procurement from black suppliers and develop strategies to rectify the situation. However, quality and specification issues have to be reflected under procurement in order to ensure compliance with safety standards.
