Search for Tenders



In order to get coverage over the whole of South Africa, Tenderscan has decentralised operations into small hubs in
Cape Town, KZN and Gauteng. Beyond our hubs we have independent correspondents in various locations in South Africa ensuring that even the small newspapers are gleaned for tenders and quotes, to add to Tenderscan's vast database.


Cape Town Hub

Mark Townsend is the founder and visioneer of Tenderscan and oversees the entire data processing system through which we source, scan, capture, classify, proofread and import tender notices. He nurtured Tenderscan from a small idea running from home, into a stable SME company with a reach all over South Africa. His background is in town planning and land surveying, and he has an eye for acute detail.

She does this in collaboration with a team of dedicated correspondents located in key areas around Southern Africa, and with support from a handful of highly efficient data capturers. Her input at Tenderscan dates back to 2002, when she joined as a data capturer. Since then she has travelled extensively, studied international relations at UCT and then graduated with a Masters degree in refugee studies at the University of East London in the UK. She is interested in corruption, migration, poverty-alleviation and development in Africa.
