Cape Peninsula University of Technology Bee Certificate

Cape Peninsula University of Technology Bee Certificate, CPUT has successfully completed a BBBEE verification exercise for the first time.

BBBEE status is beneficial to tender processes and the acquisition of funding for a variety of projects currently running at the institution.

Our current status also makes CPUT an attractive business partner because our compliance adds value to whatever deals are brokered with the institution.

Contracts Officer Mariam Hartley says the status could not have come at a better time since the codes of practice governing BBBEE is about to change in May.

“That may have meant we would have had to restart the process or needed to comply with a whole new set of codes,” she says.

Acting Executive Director Finance Maresce Geduld-Jeftha commended Hartley for her hard work during the process.

“CPUT’s BBBEE compliance is a major achievement and especially for Mariam as the coordinator of the entire verification process,” she says.

CPUT currently has a level 5 status meaning it is 80% BBBEE compliant.

The Cape Peninsula University of Technology was established on 1 January 2005, when the Cape Technikon and Peninsula Technikon merged. This merger was part of a national transformation process that transformed the higher education landscape in South Africa.

Today, this institution is the only university of technology in the Western Cape and is the largest university in the region, boasting more than 30 000 students, several campuses and service points and more than 70 programmes.

However, the institution has humble beginnings in the Cape Technikon and Peninsula Technikon, which dates back to the early 1900’s.
