valid during the negotiation period and until the ultimate award of business.
 Should Transnet conduct post tender negotiations, Respondents will be requested to provide their best and
final offers to Transnet based on such negotiations. A final evaluation will be conducted in terms of 80/20
and the contract will be negotiated and awarded to the successful Respondent(s).

will be informed of the acceptance of his/their Quotation by way of a Letter of Award. Thereafter the final

 Otherwise, a final contract will be concluded and entered into with the successful Bidder at the acceptance
of a letter of award by the Respondent.

and conditions, if the internal evaluation process has not been finalised within the validity period.
However,
once the adjudication body has approved the process and award of the business to the successful bidder(s),

SECTION 8: SBD 9- CERTIFICATE OF INDEPENDENT BID DETERMINATION
1.
Section 4 (1) (b) (iii) of the Competition Act No. 89 of 1998, as amended, prohibits an agreement between,
or concerted practice by, firms, or a decision by an association of firms, if it is between parties in a
horizontal relationship and if it involves collusive bidding (or bid rigging). Collusive bidding is a per se
prohibition meaning that it cannot be justified under any grounds. Bid rigging (or collusive bidding) occurs
when businesses, that would otherwise be expected to compete, secretly conspire to raise prices or lower
the quality of goods and / or services for purchasers who wish to acquire goods and / or services through a
bidding process. Bid rigging is, therefore, an agreement between competitors not to compete.
2.
Transnet will take all reasonable steps to prevent abuse of the supply chain management system and to:
a.
disregard the bid of any bidder if that bidder, or any of its directors have abused the institution’s
supply chain management system and or committed fraud or any other improper conduct in
relation to such system.
b.
cancel a contract awarded to a supplier of goods and services if the supplier committed any corrupt
or fraudulent act during the bidding process or the execution of that contract.
3.
This SBD serves as a certificate of declaration that would be used by institutions to ensure that, when bids
are considered, reasonable steps are taken to prevent any form of bid-rigging.
4.
In order to give effect to the above, the following certificate of Bid Determination (SBD 9) must be
completed and submitted with the bid:
