Previous Position(s)

Senior Supply Chain Consultant | Concise Consulting
2005 - 2011

ICT and Telecommunications

Consulting for niche procurement consulting firms with different clients on a project per project basis. This consulting opportunity afforded me exposure to both government and private procurement. During this period I was able to complete my BTECH: Logistics at Unisa. I was a key consultant in several IT Outsourcing projects responsible for facilitating the IT outsourcing processes on behalf of our clients namely the South African Revenue Services, South African Government Employees Pension Fund and BANKSETA. The consulting arena also afforded me exposure to the procurement of various types of products and services not only in telecommunications for example baggage replacement and repairs with SAA, sourcing of an outside broadcasting truck for M-Net, FIFA World Cup 2010 projects and facilities management outsourcing at Eskom. Each of these organisations has its own culture and way of conducting procurement. The highlight of my career as consultant has been the time working at the BANKSETA. The process started by responding to a request for proposal issued by the BANKSETA. This entailed analysing the customer’s requirements and preparing a detailed response to this RFP. The result was the creation of a detailed work breakdown structure, with the allocation of the necessary resources and submitting a costing proposal to the client. I measure the success of my time spent at the BANKSETA based on the fact that the tender was awarded to the consulting firm and thereafter extended for a further period of four years.

Sourcing Consultant | Telkom
1995 - 2003

ICT and Telecommunications

I started my career working in the purchasing department at Telkom SA Ltd in the role of a buyer capturing purchase orders, compiling tender documents, evaluating quotes and handling of queries. I was part of a helpdesk of two on the Walker Purchasing system handling queries on a national basis (for 200 buyers nationally). I formed part of the transformation project team consisting of Telkom team members and national and international consultants from Andersen Consulting (Accenture). I greatly contributed to the development of new supply chain processes and was responsible for the development of a training pack and coaching operational teams on implementation. The major achievement from this project was the Power Framework agreement that resulted in saving of over R2m pa. In Telkom, I was exposed to all the facets of supply chain namely buying, sourcing, logistics, warehousing and contracting etc, but my disposition was towards the sourcing and strategic supplier relationship environments. My role as sourcing consultant at Telkom entailed as a minimum deciding on the appropriate procurement processes, preparing tender documents, conducting supplier briefings, tender evaluation and negotiations, management of contracts in relations to SLA’s and quarterly liaison meetings with suppliers.
I received a spotlight award for the implementation of a savings model and a supplier management programme with smaller suppliers. I was also the team leader for several projects that resulted in savings for the company for example sourcing of the workforce management system (R1m savings), sourcing of a cordless telephone for the single line market (R800k saving) and the value analysis of business systems hardware and software (R1,7m saving). I also initiated the designing and implementation of a new sourcing process for the retail customer premises equipment that was approved on managing executive level.

"It was with a heavy heart that we had to accept her resignation from CCS. She is very contentious about her work, has high moral values and high integrity.
Henriette has added a lot of value to CCS’s service offering to our Clients. Henriette is very professional in her approach; she is versatile, is quick to
recommend a solution to a problem and is very creative and innovative. She always goes that extra mile, and would be an asset to any organisation!
