Pan South African Language Board (PanSALB), Supply Chain Management through Strategic Procurement division ensure timeous and compliant procurement and acquisition processes, in line with the broader aim of ensuring that PanSALB puts in place sound procurement management practices to ensure good corporate governance and benefit for all SMME’s doing business with the organisation.

 PanSALB hereby notifies all prospective suppliers interested to register as a preferred vendor of PanSALB that all new registrations must be done via the Central Supplier Database as established by National Treasury by using the following link

National Treasury on behalf on Government has implemented a Central Supplier Database to serve as the source for all supplier information for all spheres of government with effect from 1 April 2016. This initiative is based in principles of simplification, standardization, and automation of the supplier management process.

All prospective suppliers interested in pursuing opportunities within the South African government are encouraged to self-register on the Central Supplier Database. The self-registration application represents an expression of interest from the supplier to conduct business with the South African government. Once submitted, prospective vendor application details will be assessed for inclusion on the Central Supplier Database.

Vendors already registered on PanSALB’s Supplier Database and who are also registered on the CSD must provide PanSALB’s (Supplier Database Section) with their CSD supplier number and unique security code as well as any other relevant documentation (not yet electronically verified by the CSD).


The Pan South African Language Board is a Constitutional Institution established in terms of the PanSALB Act (No 59 of 1995 as amended in 1999) to promote and create conditions for the development and use of

  • All official languages
  • The Khoi, Nama, and San languages
  • Sign languages

PanSALB is aware that the late or non-payment of valid invoices and claims has dire consequences for both the PanSALB and some suppliers doing business with PanSALB. In order to comply Treasury Regulation 8.2.3, PanSALB is expected to pay their service providers within 30 days. Treasury Regulation 8.2. 3 states that, “Unless determined otherwise in a contract or other agreement, all payments due to creditors must be settled within 30 days from receipt of an invoice or, in the case of civil claims, the date of settlement or court judgment.”
This notice is directed to all service or potential providers, doing, or wishing to do business with PanSALB. All invoices received by PanSALB through the central payment email system ( shall reflect an order number (e.g. PO10484) or agreement number issued by PanSALB to the successful service provider and failing to adhere to the above request will lead to the following:

  1. Delay in processing of invoices by the Finance division and in the process
    PanSALB will be violating Treasury Regulations 8.2.3.
  2. Failure by PanSALB to meet its constitutional obligation.

The submission of invoices containing or reflecting purchase order numbers to our central email will increase our ability to pay for any service rendered or goods delivered on time. You are also advised not to accept or render any service to PanSALB without a Purchase Order or signed SLA/Contract Agreement or Appointment Letter signed by either Head of SCM, CFO or CEO.

Yours Faithfully,
Head of Supply Chain Management
Mr. Daniel Vuma
