View Our Solutions

Broad Based B-BBEE in South Africa lies at the core of the NPI Governance Consulting offering. We know that business doesn’t stop when B-BBEE Codes change. That’s why we focus on supplying critical information to our clients along with services that ensure B-BBEE alignment to the new targets. The spectrum of our professional services includes effective stakeholder engagement (suppliers, staff, key managers etc.), corporate strategy, authentic empowerment, transformation, measurable sustainability, and implementation plans that make business sense.

B-BBEE ADVISORY AND PROJECT MANAGEMENT

Strategic Transformation

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.

Verification, Scorecard Management, and Support

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

  • We ensure that transparent and professional data on B-BBEE compliance is presented to the verification agency.
  • We oversee today’s operations while keeping an eye out for tomorrow’s opportunities.
  • Sound execution and strategy are inseparable for success. We implement solutions that achieve both.

Support of Multinational Clients

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

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 and aligning good corporate governance and business objectives with the government’s requirements.

OWNERSHIP SOLUTIONS

Ownership forms an integral part of the B-BBEE scorecard. When the sub-minimum requirement is not met, it can result in a discount of at least one B-BBEE point and possible non-compliance status. We eliminate such issues by providing the following comprehensive ownership solutions:

  • Government advocacy
  • Sound advisory and consulting
  • Project management
  • Accurate reporting

Our bespoke ownership solutions offering encompasses project design, implementation, management, activation and fulfilment leading up to verification. These include:

  • Equity equivalent programme management and administration
  • Employee share scheme ownership programme (ESOP)
  • Fund administration and management
  • Broad-based ownership participation schemes (BBOPS) administration and management

MANAGEMENT CONTROL SOLUTIONS

This concerns the extent of management control exercised by black people within a business. We ensure that our clients are aligned to this crucial element. Based on assessment outcomes and a thorough needs analysis, we research, recruit and select qualified, experienced multi-industry candidates. Full service compliance deliverables include the following:

  • Employment equity consulting and reporting
  • Employment equity plan development
  • EE committee establishment
