Invitation to tender for South African Tourism’s UK offices’ Social Media Agency Services
South African Tourism is a statutory body whose main objective is to promote tourism to and within South Africa, by marketing the country as a tourism destination both internationally and domestically. Although accountable to Parliament, South African Tourism is an independent and impartial organisation affiliated to the Government of the Republic of South Africa.
As a South African Government agency operating in The United Kingdom (UK), our organisation is bound to operate within the confines of the Public Finance Management Act (PFMA) of the Republic of South Africa which has been established to secure transparency, accountability, and sound management of the revenue, expenditure, assets and liabilities of all South African Government Agencies.
