    international standards developed to provide a
    framework around which an effective Quality
    Management System can be developed
  • ISO 9001 is the auditable standard in the ISO

The sight of an achievement is the greatest gift
a human being could offer others Ayn Rand
ISO 9001 - A Process Based Approach
  • ISO 9001 does not specify the requirements for
    the goods and services being procured, ISO 9001
    is a set of requirements against which a Quality
    Management System can be developed
  • ISO 9001 makes it very clear that organisations
    must identify and manage the process which make
    up their Quality Management Systems
  • What is a Process?
  • A process is an integrated set of activities that
    use resources to transform inputs into outputs
  • A system exists whenever several processes are
    inter-connected using input-output relationships

learning Robin Sharma
ISO 9001 - A Process Based Approach
  • In effect processes are glued together by means
    of such input-output relationships
  • As the output of one process becomes the input of
    another process inputs and outputs are in effect
    the same entity
  • Inputs and outputs
  • Inputs and outputs (from a process based
    perspective) can be grouped into four general
  • Products
  • Services
  • Resources
  • Information

Only the mediocre die always at their best. Real
leaders are always improving and raising their
bar on how superbly they can perform and how
quickly they can improve Jean Giraudoux
A Quality Management System Illustrated
Processes connect by input-output relationships.
Several interconnected processes form a system
A process takes inputs and though a set of
activities translates these into outputs
Required for each process
Work Instruction

Record (data)
  • Document what you do and do as is documented

Contract Management
Procurement Scheduling and Contract Request
Tracking Contract Requests Through Bid Committees

    implemented to track both procurement schedules
    and contract requests (created from procurement
  • Each contract request is tracked through the
    various bid committees (Bid Specification, Bid
    Evaluation, Bid Adjudication and Award
  • The information extracted from the electronic
    tracking assist in highlighting any
    blockages/delays in the process which allows for
    these to be addressed
  • All Bid Committees convene on a weekly basis

The 5 Rules to being a great leader See

Neglect not your family, Elevate your lifestyle.

You get the best of others when you give the
best of yourself- Harry Firestone
SCM Policy Improvements (Cont.)

    plans during the budget approval process has now
    been included in keeping with MFMA Circular 62.

    strategies developed by multi-disciplinary teams.

If everyone was satisfied with themselves, there
would be no heroes. Mark Twain

    minor breaches of, procurement processes

This day and every one that follows for the
rest of your life offers a platform of
possibility. Every day is your life in
miniature. Robin Sharma
SCM Policy Improvements (Cont.)
  • Special Deviations from SCM Policy
  • Allows for certain contracts, for which following
    any SCM process is not prudent.
  • Prior approval from the CFO, Head SCM or
    designated official, and annual reports are to be
    produced for the Accounting Officer on
    expenditure incurred, and/or to be incurred.
  • It covers areas like computer software systems
    licensing and approved maintenance contracts -
    where these systems have appropriate authority
    via the normal SCM policy.

You tell the world what you believe via how you
behave. Complain all day and you reveal a deeply
in grained set of beliefs that you are powerless
and apathetic. Present work that has typos and
poor wording and you express a belief that
average is cool with you. Robin Sharma
SCM Policy Improvements (Cont.)

preparing, out-practicing, and out-learning
everyone around you. Robin Sharma

Brilliant things happen when you go the extra
mile for the customer Robin Sharma

Leaderships no longer about position. Now its
about passion. And having an impact through the

Ill be blunt. If you are not building leaders,
then you are not leading, youre following. Your
job is to help people do work they never dreamed
they could.- Robin Sharma

    evaluation undertaken by line department
  • Delays between BEC and BAC are strictly monitored
    and will be kept to a minimum
  • Templates will be provided by SCM to ease the
    work of line departments

A title, position and a large office do not
guarantee people will respect you. Nope. Youve
got to earn that gift. And the quickest way to
earn respect is to give it. No need to say much
more. Robin Sharma
  • Special thanks and appreciation to National
    Treasury for continued support to Local
  • Kenneth Brown as Chief Procurement officer, and
    the commitment of his team under the leadership
    of the Chief Director Henry Malinga
  • Remember that it is our duty, however, to
  • Plan appropriately
  • Be proactive
  • Have zero tolerance for non compliance

Victims make excuses while leaders drive
exceptional results. You can spot a victim a mile
away. They blame and complain and are negative
and cynical. You are not a victim Robin Sharma
  • Confident that these SCM initiatives will attest
    to be fair, transparent, equitable, competitive
    and cost- effective
  • Especially the revised processes for contract
    management, ISO 9001 and the SSS System
  • Is the foundation for monitoring spending on
    capital projects and operational expenditure,
    fostering spending that advances service
    delivery, economic development initiatives, and
    ensuring value for money

According to the Financial Times we collectively
spend 100 000 000 minutes a day playing Angry
Birds on smartphones. Most people in business are
spending the absolute best hours of their days
being busy being busy. Robin Sharma
