1) Why should I register on e-GP as a supplier? Is it only for me to get the ZPPA certificate? It has become necessary for all suppliers who intend to participate in public procurement to register on the e-GP System. This is because ZPPA has discontinued the manual registration process and issuance of physical registration certificates. Further, suppliers need to register on the e-GP System in order to for them to participate in tenders that are floated on the System. 15/05/2017 e-GP_FAQs.pdf
