Operations Manual

  • How do I go about spending SAOF money?

It works with prior approval and then reimbursement (with some prior payments for bigger projects).

  1. SAOF sends out a tender. This can be done with development projects, mapping of a sanctioned event area, coaching projects etc. Sub-committees have agreed projects that are considered approved by the SAOF VP responsible, for amounts less than R30 000.
  2. Interested parties supply an official quote for the service.
  3. SAOF considers the quote, and if approved, let’s you know with a reference number.
  4. You may or may not be paid an advance/ initial amount depending on the terms and conditions.
  5. You deliver the goods, service or map.
  6. On proof of completion of the service you get paid the balance of the agreed amount (please allow 30 days for payment). Include the reference number you obtained on approval, together with your receipts and details on the expenses sheet, and submit that to SAOF.

If you want to pay SAOF money, on the other hand, please find the banking details below, and include your name and club in the
