Why a Procurement Directory?
The Illawarra’s economy is changing and business has become more competitive. Significant job losses have occurred in the region in recent times and it is vital for local businesses to be aware of new opportunities as they arise.
The Illawarra Region Procurement Toolkit is compiled to assist Illawarra Businesses to identify supply opportunities and to improve their knowledge in responding to tender requirements. The aim of the toolkit is to encourage a greater percentage of funds being spent locally, thereby supporting local jobs and our regional economy.
The directory was compiled following a survey of businesses as to their particular requirements when seeking goods or services. The survey results revealed items that were mandatory and also common requirements to the procurement process. These results are detailed later in this toolkit.
The toolkit also provides individual results for the survey participants and a contact guide for each business.
