The University of Adelaide uses an online e-Tendering portal to publish requests for tenders, proposals, quotes, and other market activities requiring responses from suppliers.
The portal allows the University to reach a large number of potential suppliers and run tenders in an efficient and cost-effective way. Our suppliers benefit from automatic notification of opportunities we publish, and assurance that the University’s procurement processes meet a high standard of transparency and probity.
Under the University’s Purchasing Procedures, when purchasing items with a total value between $20,000 and $200,000, Requestors must obtain three quotes (unless purchasing the item from a University preferred supplier).
The e-Tendering Portal is used to obtain quotes for purchases within this value band; by issuing a product specification via the portal and inviting companies who can provide products meeting this specification to lodge quotes, the required three quotes can be obtained quickly and easily.
To initiate this process, please contact Strategic Procurement by email.
