cidb registration online tender value range based on CIDB level

The Construction Industry Development Board (CIDB) is a national body established by an Act of Parliament (Act 38 of 2000) to oversee the sustainability and growth of construction enterprises across the country.
The role of the CIDB is to facilitate and promote the improved contribution of the construction industry to SA’s economy and society. Amongst others, the CIDB promotes: Uniformity in construction procurement. Efficient and effective infrastructure delivery.
All contractors wishing to tender for construction projects in the public sector must be registered with the CIDB.

The CIDB grading system in South Africa is a tool used to categorize construction companies based on their financial and technical capacity according to a specific “grade”.

Here’s a quick breakdown of the main CIDB criteria in South Africa:

Financial Capacity:

  • This is determined by evaluating the company’s annual turnover and available working capital in the business. It gives an indication of the financial strength and stability of the company.

Technical Abilities:

  • This is determined by looking at the companies experience, qualifications of their personnel, and their track record in successfully completing projects.

This is then used, to allocate the Company the appropriate grade. The grading system consists of 9 grades, with Grade 1 being the lowest and Grade 9 the highest. The grade a company receives determines the maximum value of contracts they can bid for. Thus, the higher your grade the higher the contract value.
