Ethics and Integrity

Business ethics are the code of morals that are the standard of conduct expected of or adopted by a business. They are the set of principles which guide business or which a business adopts as the acceptable standard of performance in respect of various stakeholders and interested parties. These stakeholders include its customers, its suppliers, its employees, its shareholders, government authorities and any other party which interacts with the organisation. Business integrity is the reliability with which the business undertakes its transactions with the various parties with which it interacts. It is the soundness and honesty with which it conducts its business transactions and the relationship that it promotes with all parties with which it interacts. When business ethics and integrity are present all parties dealing with the business know they can rely on the standards with which the business conducts its business transactions.

Contract Management

Contracts do not take care of themselves. Contracts need to be controlled very tightly to maximise the benefits and minimise the risks so that your company reaps the benefits of the contracting process. This is even more crucial given the current economic conditions driven by the Global Financial Concerns. Lack of attention to detail during the tendering process, poor evaluation techniques and poorly administered contracts can literally result in hundreds of thousands of rands in extra cost or lost revenue. This occurs because administration personnel did not have sufficient knowledge or the necessary skills to recognise the risks and opportunities and to properly manage the contracts. Our Contract Management course will help delegates develop these skills and provide techniques to manage their contracts to gain maximum benefit.


Tender Processing

Tendering is a highly effective means of attaining value for money services/goods in an increasingly competitive market. However, tendering is also traditionally known as a lengthy, paper-intensive and time consuming administrative process, demanding the services of a multitude of staff members. As with any lengthy process, cost very quickly becomes a major consideration. As a result, tenders are often either compiled in haste - resulting in even more costly and time consuming errors, or the process is avoided, which has potentially crippling financial repercussions. Participating in this highly practical training course, you gain vital business skills in developing a smooth and financially rewarding tendering process, but also be exposed to the latest thinking on tender evaluation, post tender negotiations, contract set-up and identifying and combating fraud. This intensive training will ensure that you return to your organisation with a wealth of tendering skills guaranteed to revolutionise your tendering processes.
