Earning points on the Amended Codes – EconoBEE Newsletter – 22 July 2014


EconoBEE - BEE Points = Business Earning points on the Amended Codes is undoubtedly going to prove to be challenging. However the biggest challenges are going to come from applying the Amended Codes early enough in the year to continue achieving a good level.

Breaking news – 08 July 2014 – The DTI has confirmed that they are not going to extend the transitional period. It remains at 1st May 2015. This means that all verification certificates issued from May 2015 will use the Amended Codes. Practically a company who is being verified after May 2015 has already begun their rating period that will use the Amended Codes.

It therefore becomes vital to understand the Amended Codes and earn sufficient points in this short time frame to continue achieving a satisfactory score.

Enterprise and Supplier Development
The Amended Codes allocate 44 points to this vitally important element. Even though it is a consolidation of the old Preferential Procurement and Enterprise Development elements it includes some aspects that if left unprepared will cause a substantial drop in points.
