How to Reboot Your Company after Lockdown - using PIPS

About the webinar


Most organisations such as state-owned entities, mining houses and municipalities recommend that their suppliers use the SEIFSA Price and Index Pages (PIPS) when adjusting their contracts. This process is often referred to as a Contract Price Adjustment (CPA). 

SEIFSA PIPS is the best tool to use to adjust cost increases resulting from price changes. When correctly applied, the indices will ensure that companies boost their margins during down-market conditions. 

This free webinar outlines the contents that will be expounded in great detail in the Theory and Calculation of Contract Price Adjustment course. Some examples include: 

  • an exposition on SEIFSA PIPS including a review of roughly 239 indices currently published;
  • the advantages of using PIPS in the CPA process;
  • consequences of not using SEIFSA PIPS in a CPA; and
  • case studies that highlight the potential negative effects that price changes and inflation can have on the margins and sustainability of businesses, especially when a contract does not stipulate that SEIFSA’s PIPS must be used in the calculation of a CPA.
