CHDA, registered as the Chris Hani Development Agency, is a state-owned company (SOC) and is wholly owned by the Chris Hani District Municipality.  The agency is in the process of establishing a Panel of suitable Contractors for the construction and maintenance of various projects. The Agency is therefore calling for the expression of interest from only suitably accredited and experienced Contractors who can be registered into the CHDA Panel of Contractors for a period of 36 months according to the following details:


EOI REF: EIO/06/20-21


The Contractors are required for the following disciplines and grades –



CIDB Classification

CIDB Grading

Civil Engineering


3 to 8

Electrical Engineering – Building


3 to 8

Electrical Engineering – Infrastructure


3 to 8

General Building


3 to 8

Mechanical Engineering


3 to 8

Fencing Contractors

This bidding process consists of two phases, namely:

  • Phase 1 – Expression of Interest in order to create a panel of grade 3 to 8 Contractors.
  • Phase 2 – Invited Quotation process from a panel of Contractors from phase 1.

 Only a maximum of ten or less contractors may be selected for each grade of the above disciplines and CIDB classifications. However, should any of the selected companies be able to progress to higher/ regress to lower grades during the period of their contract, CHDA will consider them for the grades that they qualify for.

The selection processes will only be based on the Functionality capacity.

Project-specific quotations will only be invited from the Contractors that have been selected into the Panel – evaluation will then be based on the 80/20 or 90/10 preferential points system, where 80 or 90 points will be allocated for price and 20 or 10 points for B-BBEE Status Level of Contributor.

The detailed terms of reference and selection criteria are indicated in the Expression of Interest document.

No Briefing Session will be held.
