Tsebo operates a highly integrated value chain, minimising, cost and optimising efficiency at every stage. The deep level of collaboration the Group cultivates with its stable supplier base makes this possible. Tsebo procurement and operational teams have intimate knowledge of their supplier operations, and work with them in planning for mutual benefits. This collaboration of systems, processes, skills programmes and market knowledge delivers mutual benefits and enhances value for clients and customers alike.
Tsebo deploys its sourcing and procurement mandate across Africa Middle East through a centralized Procurement function, headed by a Group CPO at Exco level. The Procurement Policy is designed to service the Company and its operating divisions by leveraging our substantial purchasing power to ensure the continuous provision of high-quality, maximum value-for-money goods and services, whilst protecting and enhancing gross margin though best-price purchasing. Our approach to savings is to also ensure a high conversion rate to the bottom line.
Through a well-defined focus on Preferential Procurement from transformative suppliers, we contribute to the Company’s B-BBEE Level 1 Empowering Supplier status, thus benefitting our operating divisions’ contracted clients with a 135% spend recognition. We deploy our overall procurement mandate through a ‘simple-rules’ strategy to create and achieve sustainable value for our Customers and their Clients by using a few simple rules, key processes and disciplined tactics
