New Central Suppliers Database Registration

All existing and prospective service providers/creditors to the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality are hereby notified that, with effect from 1 July 2016, the municipal (NMBM) suppliers’ database, on which they may already be registered, will cease to be operative and an electronic Central Suppliers Database (CSD), developed by National Treasury, will be implemented. Accordingly, to be able to do business with the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality from 1 July 2016, all existing or prospective suppliers or creditors of the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality are required to register on this Central Suppliers Database (Note: Only providers registered on the National Treasury CSD will be regarded as verified providers by the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality).

The implementation of this Central Suppliers Database is motivated on the desire to reduce duplication of effort and cost for both business and government. Registering is to be done through self-registering on the CSD website. In the self-registering process, the National Treasury CSD will verify the following information from suppliers/creditors: (1) Business registration (including details of directorship); (2) Bank account holder information; (3) Employees in the service of the state (National and Provincial); (4) Tax compliance status (5); Directors’/Members’ identity details (6) Tender defaulting and restriction status.

Note, however, that the following cannot yet be automatically verified by the National Treasury CSD and must therefore be sent to the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality’s Supply Chain Management (SCM) Compliance Office for verification purposes (the Municipality will receive daily updates on all successful applications for registration on the CSD website):

* Municipal Billing Clearance Certificate * National Home Builders Registration Council (NHBRC) Certificate * Construction Industry Development Board (CIDB) Construction Registers Service (CSR) status and * Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment (BBBEE) Certificate
The above must either be hand delivered or couriered to the following offices (note that this documentation must be accompanied by a completed NMBM Suppliers Verification Form, obtainable from the NMBM website (www.nelsonmandelabay.gov.za – go to “Public Notices”) or from the offices below):

The Supply Chain Management Compliance Office, Harrower Road Depot, corner of Buxton Avenue and Harrower Road, North End, Port Elizabeth

OR

The Supply Chain Management Compliance Office, Budget and Treasury Customer Care office, ground floor, Town Hall Building, Market Street, Uitenhage

Assistant Directors of different service delivery departments will be appointed to report for duty in Uitenhage with decision-making powers to directly respond to issues affecting residents and efforts such as the “love where you live” campaign to clean up the area.

Executive Directors reported to the community regarding current ongoing expenditure in Uitenhage wards, efforts to curb water leaks, fix potholes and specific economic development opportunities that exist and the review of high rates for public facilities. The planned construction of a desalination plant, study outcomes regarding the development of the township economy, the ocean economy, the redevelopment of Bayworld and the many other planned initiatives were highlighted.

“We have the will to solve your problems and know how to do it. I can assure you that we have solved much greater problems,” Dr Danny Jordaan said to an appreciative crowd at the Allanridge Hall.

Last year the municipality hosted a council meeting at the Uitenhage Indoor Sports Centre and Mayor Jordaan said another council meeting with a clear bias on economic development for the area will be convened soon.

Work on R3,1 Million Clinic Site in KwaNobuhle Starts Today

The contractor, appointed by the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality to build a R3,1 million clinic in KwaNobuhle (Uitenhage), will start with the clearing of the site on Monday, indicating the beginning of better Primary Healthcare Services to the community of Gunuluza. Construction is expected to start a week later.

The building of a new 460 square meter clinic, to be situated on erf 21957, 75 Bantom Street, was necessitated since the Mabandla Clinic with three consulting rooms became too small to accommodate the more than 10 900 clients that visit the clinic monthly. As a result nurses shared consulting room space and the inadequate pharmacy room space and small waiting areas did not add value to a visit to this facility as well.

This is now a thing of the past as the new clinic will have six (6) consulting rooms, two waiting areas, a treatment room, a pharmacy, office space and more to enable dignified services to a community with a high prevalence of TB, HIV and High Blood Pressure.

Addressing an appreciative crowd at the sod turning this week, Public Health Standing Committee Chairperson, Cllr Nancy Sihlwayi, encouraged the community to immediately take ownership of the project and to act if they see anything untoward happening on the building site. She said the community is responsible for protecting the new building since it will impact their lives directly in a positive way.

“I appreciate the fact that we can give hope to this community today,” she added.

Sihlwayi also reminded residents that the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality is the only municipality in the Eastern Cape that deliberately budget and build clinics since the erection of Primary Healthcare Facilities is the constitutional responsibility of Provincial Government.

Dr Ebrahim Hoosain, Acting Executive Director of Public Health, said it is an honour to deliver the clinic and that efficient health services will be provided to so many people.
