B-BBEE Scorecard Analysis & Strategy

Strategic Transformation Planning and Implementation

Our B-BBEE strategic interventions align measurable outcomes, competitive advantages and socio-economic objectives in a manner that is both value-adding to the client’s business and integrated into its overall strategic plan. New business opportunities are sometimes hidden in data sources that extend beyond the client’s data warehouse. NPI Governance Consulting mines these opportunities by exploring both structured and unstructured data within and beyond the enterprise.  Our preferred approach is to facilitate a forward-thinking view (3 to 5 years) of the Organization’s transformation expectations; as reflected in their B-BBEE scorecard and work back to current state culminating in an annual action plan.

Verification Scorecard Management

Working very closely with our clients and verification agencies, NPI Governance Consulting has earned an excellent track record of ensuring that the verification process runs smoothly. We secure the highest possible B-BBEE Contributor status.

We prepare the organization for Verification.

This includes:

  • Identifying the team within the organization that is responsible for successfully obtaining a Verification Status.
  • Educating the team on the requirements across all deemed measures for verification.
  • Advising on the optimum approach for the organization across all measures and the expected level of B-BBEE attainment.
  • We facilitate an internal process of data collection within the organizations, leading to the preparation of a verification file for submission to the Verification Agency.
  •  Ensuring that transparent and professional data on B-BBEE compliance is presented to the verification agency.

Sound execution and strategy are inseparable for success. We implement solutions that achieve both.

Support for Multinational Clients

Whilst adhering to international social responsibility obligations, B-BBEE presents its own unique challenges. For this reason, multinational groups operating in South Africa for the first time, often experience some difficulty in adjusting their businesses to the required B-BBEE compliance status.

Having worked with multinationals since 1999, NPI Governance Consulting has a solid understanding of the challenges they are faced with. Our role includes B-BBEE compliance education as well as aligning good corporate governance and business objectives with the government’s requirements.
