As part of Sun International's (SI) commitment to the transformation of the South African economy through the adoption of the Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment (B-BBEE) Framework, SI supports constructive participation of Black South Africans at all levels within our economy. It is this belief that drives our philosophy behind sustainable procurement practices, particularly related to Preferential Procurement and Enterprise Development.
To this end, SI seeks to partner with suppliers who share a similar vision for South Africa, and who will support us in meeting these objectives. We invite such suppliers who believe that they have a relevant product or service offering, to register as a potential supplier to our group, therefore being eligible for consideration in future supply related activities. SI reserves the right, at its sole and absolute discretion to approve supplier applications.

- International companies wishing to register on the SI database should contact the Group Supply Development Manager for guidance
- Once you have successfully registered onto the SI Supplier Database, your organisation’s details will be available to all SI operations for relevant sourcing opportunities. You are also welcome to contact the individual procurement departments directly to promote your product or organisation.
- It is important to note that SI maintains various group standardized products & services, and registration of a suppliers details on the database does not guarantee any business or course of action by SI.
- We do however, commit to offering your organization an opportunity to compete for business wherever a suitable opportunity exists, and where your organization meets the requirements of that particular opportunity. Inclusion in such opportunities will be limited to members of our database.
- Should you feel that any one of our operations has not lived up to this commitment, please notify the Supply Development Manager.
Minimum vendor requirements
SI seeks to engage with suppliers who are ‘good corporate citizens’. You will therefore be asked to provide a number of supporting documents as part of your application to supply our group.
This may include the following, and will apply, as and where applicable, to international supplier registrations:
- Tax Clearance or VAT Registration certificate
- A Valid B-BBEE certificate (South African suppliers only)
- Company Registration Certificate (ID document in the case of an individual entity)
- Compliance to legislation relevant to your sector
- Gaming Board registration if applicable
In addition to the minimum vendor requirements above, all supplier applications will be put through our internal ‘SI Vendor Matrix’, designed to holistically assess a supplier’s B-BBEE alignment to our own objectives.
In the interests of supplier development, SI will upon request, engage with any supplier who does not meet our minimum vendor and/or Vendor Matrix requirements in identifying such opportunities for development.
Though a network of strategic relationships, select partners support SI in delivering a comprehensive Enterprise and Supplier Development strategy to our stakeholders. In the true spirit of collaboration, all SI suppliers are encouraged to network with these partners

||Being an entrepreneur in South Africa inevitably leads to taking part in tenders. Or at least it should.
Tendersure is a web based tendering tool that takes advantage of the many benefits that digital data offers, delivering improvements in efficiency, both from a time and money point of view, as well as offering numerous decision support tools. The efficiency aspects lend themselves to a highly traceable and auditable system, which in turn helps to combat corruption.

SI constantly strives to grow and develop its Enterprise Development strategy related to suppliers not currently in the SI Supply Chain. If you believe that you have an opportunity we would be interested in, please forward a written proposal to the Supply Development Manager using a standard Enterprise Development Application Form.
As an existing supplier to SI, it is to our mutual benefit to work hand in hand in developing your organisations’ capacity through formal Supplier Development engagement. If you have a need for such supplier development, we invite you to complete the Supplier Development Application form, and submit along with a brief proposal of your requirement. This can be emailed to the Supply Development Manager.
Preferential Procurement Results
SI’s commitment to B-BBEE is absolute. We not only strive to achieve the maximum Department of Trade and Industry (dti) points available, but continue to exceed this requirement through concerted and dedicated empowered procurement. Our internal ‘Phila Procurement Award’ recognizes the property demonstrating the greatest improvement in empowered procurement practices. This has stirred up some healthy internal competition.
The graph below illustrates each properties Preferential Procurement result, as well as an internal “uncapped” result representing the extent to which the property exceeded the requirement in any or all of the Preferential Procurement elements.
