MBABANE – Are you a credible debt collector?  Then EPTC has a business opportunity on your radar.
Eswatini Post and Telecommunications Corporation (EPTC) have invited suitably qualified companies to submit tenders to collect debts as assigned by the corporation.

It was explained that the eventual winning company would be expected to demand and receive amounts owing by any debtor whose name was mentioned in the schedule to be issued by EPTC to the agent, from time to time.

The debt collector will be expected to sue for payments upon non-payment of the said debts, and any monies or any part. The tenderers will also institute all necessary legal proceedings for the recovery and collection of the said debts.

Soon after successful collection, the company will remit to EPTC, on a monthly basis, debt collections net of agreed commission.
As part of the reporting processes, the debt collector will regularly submit to EPTC a report on instructions matters, which had been assigned by the corporation.


EPTC clarified that this Request for Proposal (RFP) was not a contract, and did not create an obligation on EPTC’s part to purchase goods, services or works from any company submitting a proposal.

“EPTC in its sole and absolute discretion reserves the right to reject any or all proposals, whether or not these instructions were followed,” EPTC explained.
It was also pointed out that EPTC, which is led by Managing Director (MD) Petros Dlamini, reserves the right at any point of the tender process, to disqualify any non-compliant tender proposal.

It was further explained that tenderers would not be permitted to modify or change the substance of their proposals after the closing date, which has been slated for June 13, 2019. 
However, EPTC reserves the right to modify, or change the specifications or even cancel the tender before the tender opening, and restart the tender process if necessary.

“The tender shall have no interlineations, erasures, or overwriting except as necessary to correct errors made by the tenderer, in which case such corrections shall be initialled by the person or persons signing the tender,” it was stated. 

EPTC warned that tenderers and their officers, employees, agents and advisers ought not to engage in any collusion, anti-competitive conduct or any other similar conduct with any other tenderer or any other person in relation to the preparation or submission of tenders.

In addition to any other remedies available under any law or any contract, EPTC may at its sole discretion immediately reject any tender submitted by a tenderer that engaged in any collusive tendering, anti-competitive conduct or any other similar conduct with any other tenderer or any other person in relation to the preparation or submission of tenders.


“Any collusion among tenderers or between tenderers and EPTC personnel is forbidden and discovery of any such act will disqualify the tenderer and result in disciplinary action against the EPTC employee,” categorically stated the parastatal.
