"..a central supplier database will be introduced. Suppliers will only be required to register once when they do business with the state. This will significantly reduce the administrative burden for business, especially small and medium-sized enterprises. The database will interface with SARS, the Companies and Intellectual Property Commission and the payroll system. It will electronically verify a supplier’s tax and BEE status, and enable public sector officials doing business with the state to be identified. This intervention will also reduce the administrative burden for SCM practitioners and address many of the concerns raised by the Auditor-General every year."

Calibration laboratories have traditionally been staffed by highly skilled metrologists performing highly accurate measurements, using laborious, manually operated equipment. To obtain good measurement results required years of experience and thorough knowledge of the measurement systems being used. The metrologists’ skill therefore had a major impact on the reliability of the measurement results produced by the laboratory
