About eighty percent of all physical forestry work is executed by contractors. The total number of formal contractors in South Africa is about 300 of which all must be selected to execute activities. This article offers a method for selecting contractors in an objective, transparent and participative way. The use of the Decision Analysis System (DAS), also referred to as decision-making by objectives, makes it possible that a large number of objectives can be taken into account to select the best amongst a wide range of alternatives, while still ensuring that rational decision-making takes place.
