FAQs

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?

Via email - SupplierPortalHelpdesk@pnp.co.za

Is the training optional?

Training is compulsory for all suppliers because there are business rules built into the workflow automation which govern the system usage, and these need to be clearly understood.
