13. The QSE Scorecard for the CA Sector

13.2 Application of the CA Sector QSE Scorecard


The table below represents the QSE Scorecard and contains the Elements and Weighting points attached to each Element:









Management Control


Employment Equity


Skills Development


Preferential Procurement


Enterprise Development


Socio-Economic Development contributions



Any enterprise with an annual Total Revenue of between R5 million and R35 million qualifies as a QSE.


A QSE must select any four of the seven Elements of B-BBEE for purposes of measurement under the QSE Scorecard.


A QSE will be scored in proportion to the extent that it meets the compliance Targets of those four Elements.


Wherever a Standard Valuation Method applies to measuring an indicator, the same standard should apply, as far as reasonably possible, in all other applicable calculations.


The adjusted recognition for gender must be used for the purposes of calculating the Employment Equity, Skills Development and Management Control Elements of the QSE Scorecard. In each case the following formula is used for the calculation:



C  is limited to a maximum of 50% the Target


Where      A      =      Adjusted recognition for gender

                   B      =      percentage of Employees in the measurement category that are Black People

                   C      =      percentage of Employees in the measurement category that are black women
