Invitation to small businesses in the Healthcare Industry to participate in the GEMS Procurement Advice Centre (PAC) initiative

The Government Employees Medical Scheme (GEMS) was registered in terms of the Medical Schemes Act 131 of 1998 with effect from 1 January 2005 and commenced member enrolment on 1 January 2006. The registered office of the Scheme is based in the Menlyn Maine Precinct, Pretoria.

GEMS is dedicated to enhancing its transformation initiatives and supporting small businesses looking to enter the competitive procurement landscape or wishing to increase their competitiveness in the procurement environment. GEMS is equally committed to promoting procurement compliance among companies interested in responding to GEMS and other tenders.

GEMS has therefore implemented a Procurement Advice Centre (PAC) to promote providers’ procurement competitiveness.

GEMS would like to extend an invitation to small businesses* in the Healthcare Industry to participate in the Procurement Advice Centre's Tender Training and Supplier Database Registration Coaching Program, initiated by GEMS.

The program support interventions span a maximum duration of six (6) months, during which you will participate in various online training sessions and complete tender exercises.

Interested small businesses are required to provide GEMS with their contact information, company profile, and a valid B-BBEE certificate, which must be submitted to only the email address of ProcAdviceCentre@gems.gov.za for consideration. GEMS reserves the right not to place an applicant on the Program in its sole discretion. 

All enquiries could also be directed by mail to ProcAdviceCentre@gems.gov.za.
