Liaison Committee Guidelines

Consulting Engineers South Africa (CESA) Liaison Committees, both at national and branch level, are key contact points where clients interact with persons representing the organisation. Thus the lobbying and liaison that takes place at these interactions forms part of the lifeblood and raison d’etre of CESA, i.e. to enhance members’ professional and business interests.

The following documents provide further guidance to liaison committees when dealing with clients.
Recognising that clients are of prime importance to us, liaison committees can fulfil a very important role in this regard. This guideline is therefore intended to facilitate the task of liaison committees.
Since only few members can represent CESA at these client contacts, it’s of paramount importance that the committees give feedback to the wider membership. Since it is true that Information is powerful and “knowledge is power”. However, knowledge and information are more powerful when shared.
Annually, CESA identifies and focuses on pertinent issues to improve the professional and business environment in order to enhance infrastructure delivery, in terms of speed, time and cost (quality outcomes)
CESA does not see itself as an island, but collaborate with peer organisations in the Built Environment to further its goals. To this point CESA has entered into a Memorandum of Understanding with other Built Environment Professional organisations,Municipal Infrastructure Support Agency (MISA),City of Tshwane and Passenger Rail Agency of South Africa (PRASA) .
Best Practice Procurement
CESA wishes to strengthen knowledge, to see new perspectives, to explore innovative ideas, and to share best practice experiences in order to face the issues and challenges encountered in making our procurement environment conducive to achieve value for money and money for value.
