DAC B-BBEE Procurement Management


Supplier B-BBEE Management for Dynamics 365 for Operations, with a Procurement Spend report

For South African Legal Entities, conducting business comes with a requirement to track and report on Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment (“B-BBEE”). This requirement is not within the scope of the localization of Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Operations. This means that medium to large organisations who are using the business application as their enterprise resource planning system must employ a manual process to report on their B-BBEE performance. This can be a time-consuming process with a probability of human error. Alternatively, they can source a development team to build a solution for them to meet these requirements which can be a costly exercise. Hence, we have built a solution that enables them to manage a Suppliers B-BBEE Certificate information and by extension enables you to track and report on B-BBEE Procurement Spend.

Organisations engage in various activities and perform financial transactions in pursuit of their vision and mission statement on a daily basis. These transactions are captured in Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Operations. The data is used to generate business documents and reports. With the scope of localization not including B-BBEE organisations are not able to track, monitor, and further report on Preferential Procurement Spend for the year without manual intervention.

Supplier B-BBEE Management is an extension of the standard Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Operations functionality and allows you to assign B-BBEE Certificate information against a Vendor record. The additional fields with B-BBEE related information required to report on B-BBEE Procurement Spend can then be linked to the amount spent on Vendors to enable B-BBEE reporting.
