Sullivan Mphahlele

Senior Supply Chain Consultant

Sullivan has a Higher Diploma Tax Law from the University of Johannesburg, a B Com Honours from the University of Natal, a B Com and a Higher Education Diploma from the University of the North.

Sullivan has worked closely with the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) to identify the best ways to communicate the effect of implementation and management of B-BBEE in South Africa.

Sullivan has held numerous management level positions in large corporates both locally and abroad and now serves a Senior Supply Chain Consultant on the BEESA Transformation Consulting team.

The cost of doing B-BBEE has increased significantly with the introduction of the amended B-BBEE Codes of Good Practice. The newly introduced exclusion of Imports from Preferential Procurement is an additional challenge.

Importers are at times not able to score enough points in Preferential Procurement and therefore have to spend large amounts of money in other elements to ensure required B-BBEE Levels or Compliance is achieved. As a result of these challenges and costs, Importers are finding B-BBEE a tough pill to swallow. Should this be your business’s situation this presentation may have some answers.
