Welcome to Stellenbosch University

Some organisations open their call for proposals to the public and in response to the open call, the University will be required to complete tender documentation to be submitted with the proposal. The tender documentation generally consists of a valid Tax Clearance Certificate, BEE certificate, declaration of procurement records, declaration of conflict of interest, financial information of the University, etc. An important aspect of tenders is that the terms of the contract are fixed at the tender stage and are non-negotiable, thus the University agrees to the terms prior to being awarded the project. The University puts measures in place to mitigate the possible risks in the event of being awarded the project.
