The Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) is one of the leading scientific research and technology development organisations in Africa. In partnership with national and international research and technology institutions, CSIR undertakes directed and multidisciplinary research and technology innovation that contributes to the improvement of the quality of life of South Africans. The CSIR’s main site is in Pretoria while it is represented in other provinces of South Africa through regional offices.
CSIR has been appointed by the Department of Science and Inovation (DSI) to implement a project to design and construct a new Science Centre in the Intsika Yethu Municipality of Cofimvaba in the Eastern Cape. Whereas the four strategic goals that should be addressed by science centres in South Africa constitute a primary roadmap for the development programmes run by the science centre, the context of these programmes will at all times be geared to:
  • contribute to the DSI’s endeavours to build a healthy National System of Innovation (NSI). The process of building an effective and a successful NSI requires among other things, a society that: (a) understands and values science, (including technology and innovation); and (b) appreciates the critical role of science in ensuring national prosperity and a sustainable environment;
  • enhance the objectives of the National Development Plan -2030 (NDP). The NDP has identified three priorities that are necessary for the plan’s objectives to be achieved. These include improving the quality of education, skills and innovation, all of which will be taken into consideration when the programmes of the science centre are designed; and
  • contribute to the outcomes of the government’s Medium Term Strategic Framework (MTSF). The operations of the science centre will be arranged in such a way that it enables the adjustment for timeous response to the medium-term objectives of government. Attention will be given to the outcomes, which the DSIis expected to address or contribute.
The incorporation of a science centre into the Cofimvaba Rural District Technology-led Education initiative is informed by the intention to:
  • advance thegoals and objectives of the DSI-led campaign to promote public awareness of and engagement in science. The diverse technologies through which the initiative seeks to enhance the teaching and learning, and the accompanying agricultural development in the project area provides a window of opportunity to use these as instruments to raise science awareness among various sections of the communities in the district; and
  • contribute to the development of a skilled and capable workforce to support an inclusive growth path, particularly high-level scarce skills in SET areas.This project is currently underway and the successfulcandidate will be appointed to complete the project works, all technical aspects related to the project and management of project team and project cost. The successful bidder will laise with the professional team in support of the successful completion of the project. The estimated project cost of works is R 8 976 000 (incl. VAT).

Joint Ventures, Consortia and Subcontracting:

Most large tenders are composed of tasks in a number of different fields, and it is not always possible for a single company to cater for all of them, and therefore Joint Ventures and Consortia are formed to then submit a tender together.

Government tenders are also requiring the subcontracting of a percentage of the tender work, and the trouble is then finding Subcontractors to comply with the tender requirements

To assist companies with finding tender partners and subcontractors, you can now submit your contact details and company information on this page, so other interested parties can contact you for purposes of forming Joint Ventures and subcontracting

You will need to supply your details on every tender you are interested in tendering for

NOTE: This is not a tender application form, it is meant to facilitate the meeting of partners to form a Joint Venture or Subcontractor relationship for this tender only
