This includes construction works and consultant services, the disposal of goods no longer required, and the selection of contractors to assist in the provision of municipal services.

SCM is responsible for ensuring a sound, sustainable and accountable supply chain that promotes black economic empowerment and local economic development, and encourages small businesses and joint venture partnerships. The procurement system is fair, equitable, transparent, competitive and cost effective, in accordance with the Constitution of South Africa.
