Tender Notices Online

Had a very interesting conversation today with one of our regional managers who informed me of how much it costs to subscribe to a certain tender notification service. It turns out it isn’t cheap.

The Association appreciates how important it is for those operating within the Construction Industry to source and submit tenders. As a service to our members we do extensive research across the province, and upload tender notices on a daily bases pertaining to Civil, Electrical and Construction. The information is accessed in a password protected section of our website and only members are given passwords.

Information is obtained from the Natal Mercury, The Tribune, The Natal Witness, The Zululand Observer and The South Coast Herald, as well as the Government Gazette. The data is carefully compiled and placed in an easily accessible and easy to read Format.

In addition to this service, there is a whole host of other services we also provide to our members. I do find it fascinating that our annual membership fee is considerably less, than it costs to subscribe to an online tender notification service, our members get so much more for their money though.
