This is one of the most confusing aspects of BEE.
What is the difference between a scorecard and a BEE certificate”? A BEE scorecard is a calculation of how many points you have earned. A verified certificate is confirmation that the points you have earned have been verified.

Your customer wants a verified BEE s certificate from you.

How does one go about getting the verified certificate?

In summary
1) Obtain a BEE scorecard reflecting points earned
2) Call in a verification agency to verify that the points you have earned are correctly stated and accurately calculated.

In detail:
1) Obtain a BEE scorecard reflecting points earned.
This is where we come in as a BEE consultant. We help you to build up that scorecard – we don’t “give” you points. We know what is able to earn points, and based no the data we are able to collect from you, we will assist you in calculating your scorecard. We also will assist in desiging strategies to be able to earn more points in the future. The process of building up your scorecard is not an instant fix. It can take months, or even years to be able to build up a really good scorecard

2) Call in a verification agency to verify that the points you have earned are correctly stated and accurately calculated.
Once you have a scorecard, and are satisfied with the estimate of points earned, you can call in a verification agency to verify the accuracy of the data. If you have used our services we can be 100% certain that the points we have calculated will be accurate and will be verified by the agency. The process of verification involved collection and supply to the verification agency all the data that will be used as evidence to substantiate the scorecard obtained. This can take as little as a week – if you have the documentation available. The actual verification takes about a day – depending on the size of your company and the volume of data to be verified. Thereafter the verification agency will issue a certificate showing the score and level achieved. This certificate is valid for a year from date of issue.

Next year the process should be repeated, but as with everything new it will be easier the second time around.
