BBBEE Wise will identify the exact criteria applicable to your entity for Enterprise and Supplier Development and advise your company accordingly. We will calculate the target speed for the measured period, ensure contributions are made as per the targets set out in the B-BBEE Codes of Good Practice, advise you on any shortfalls, and assist with the implementation thereof. 

Once all candidates are identified, BBBEE Wise will conduct due diligence on the potential candidates to ensure compliance and that said suppliers qualify as beneficiaries as per the B-BBEE Codes, as well as being compatible with the Measured Entity. These candidates will be presented to the client for perusal and final decision, ensuring the beneficiary is a qualifying, worthy recipient of said funding and/or assistance above normal. 

Enterprise and Supplier Development is a business-to-business transaction, with the aim of making a contribution of such a nature that the operational and financial status of the beneficiary is uplifted. This goes towards the ultimate goal of small business development within South Africa. 

These contributions are made towards previously disadvantaged people who have now ventured into the business world. As a result, Enterprise Development is only recognisable for contributions made towards a 51% Black-Owned EME (Exempt Micro Enterprise) or QSE (Qualifying Small Enterprise). 

Contributions are monetary or non-monetary contributions that are specific to the enterprise. 

Enterprise and Supplier Development is made up of three sub-categories: 

Enterprise Development

Supplier Development

Preferential Procurement

The sub-minimum has to be achieved for each of the sub-categories to avoid a discounted level.


The Preferential Procurement element aims to:

Drive transformation through-out the economy by encouraging procurement only from suppliers that are compliant with the B-BBEE Scorecard.

BBBEE Wise has identified that Preferential Procurement in Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment has become a growing concern for companies who cannot keep their supplier information up-to-date and that face difficulties in collecting and maintaining B-BBEE Certifications from their suppliers.

BBBEE Wise has always prided itself on giving our clients the best possible service and has developed a solution to our clients Preferential Procurement needs. We have achieved this solution by creating a portal for our clients to have up-to-date information about their supplier’s BEE Credentials.

The portal is a sharing mechanism that will be used between BBBEE Wise and our clients. This is an electronic gateway that provides a collection of information accessible over the internet through a web browser.

Our procurement service provides expert support for clients seeking to evaluate and enhance their procurement capability and performance.
