Suppliers/Vendors Transacting With the Municipality
 
Suppliers and Service Providers transacting with the Municipality are urged to ensure that their banking details are updated and correct on both the eThekwini supplier database and National Treasury’s Centralised Supplier Database(CSD).
 
The CSD came into effect in July last year and aims to create a national point of contact for all government business with regards to supply chain management. The previous banking details will be overwritten with those that have been verified by National Treasury. EThekwini Municipality’s database will be an exact replica to that of Treasury, as per legislation.
 
Payments to suppliers will be done utilising the banking details on the CSD record.
 
The onus is on the supplier to ensure their details are correct on both database for payment of services to be processed.
 
Suppliers can send queries to the National Treasury helpdesk by emailing csd@treasury.gov.za or calling 012 406 9222. Suppliers that wish to query using the Provincial Treasury can email database@kzntreasury.gov.za or call 033 897 4516. For queries regarding eThekwini’s e-Procurement system, suppliers may email eprocurement@durban.gov.za or call 031 322 7011 for more information.
