The Standard for Infrastructure Procurement and Delivery Management (SIPDM) heralded an important milestone in the separation of the supply chain for infrastructure procurement and delivery management from that for general goods and services as it came into effect on 1 July 2016.

In the foreword to to the SIPDM, Kenneth Brown, Chief Procurement Officer, National Treasury says:

"The SIPDM is required to be implemented by organs of state which are subject to the PFMA on 1 July 2016. Regulation 3(1) of the Supply Chain Management Policy issued in terms of the MFMA requires the accounting officer of a municipality or municipal entity to at least annually review the implementation of the SCM Policy and, if necessary, submit proposals for the amendment of the policy to the council or the board of directors. The issuing of the Model SCM Policy will trigger a review of the current policies and require that an appropriate SCM Policy be put in place for infrastructure. There is no date set for implementation. Nevertheless, the revised policy should be in place for implementation by 1 July 2017 at the very latest."
