BizAdvance Consulting comments and references:

Relates to the Enterprise and Supplier Development (ESD) element of the scorecard, i.e. Statement 400 page 60. This element is a combination of two elements in the previous Codes of 2007, namely Procurement and Enterprise Development. Large entities no longer qualify as beneficiaries. Emphasis has been placed on the development of black suppliers as beneficiaries.

Enterprise Development Contributions are measured as a percentage of Net Profit after Tax.
