INVITATION OF BIDS FOR THE APPOINTMENT OF A SERVICE PROVIDER TO RENDER SECURITY (GUARDING) SERVICES IN THE DEPARTMENT OF MINERALS AND ENERGY (POLOKWANE) REGIONAL OFFICE FOR A PERIOD OF 24 MONTHS
The Department issued the above mentioned bid on the Government Tender Bulletin (GTB) on 06 March 2020 with a compulsory briefing session of 17 March 2020 and the bid closing date of 03 April 2020 at 11am.
After the announcement made by the President on the 23 March regarding the national lockdown as a measure to combat the COVID-19 epidemic, effective from 26 March 2020 midnight, the Department deemed it unreasonable to expect service providers to submit proposals on the above mentioned closing date and therefore took a decision to extend the closing date for this particular bid (DMR/009/2019/20) to 22 April 2020 at 11h00. The nationwide lockdown was extended for a further period of two weeks, ending on 30 April 2020
On Friday, 1 May 2020, South Africa entered a new phase of the COVID-19 coronavirus national lockdown - Level 4. The current level allows for a certain level of flexibility/activity with necessary precautions. It is against this reason that the Department has reached a conclusion that service providers can be able to submit proposals for this bid
The final date for closing of bid DMR/009/2019/20 will therefore be on 13 May 2020 at 11h00.
All the other particulars of the bid will remain unchanged
