We operate in a resource constrained environment so we are continually looking for ways to be more productive, efficient and effective.
The Purchasing and Distribution Department are responsible for all purchasing and procurement processes for capital expense items, consumables and services.
We are interested in retaining and establishing business with suppliers who provide:
To select suppliers we would normally undertaken some form of tender process. In general, Requests for Quotation, Requests for Information, Expressions of Interest, Requests for Proposal, and Tenders are advertised on the Government Electronic Tender Service (GETS) website (external link) .
Suppliers may register with GETS to gain access to public sector tender information.
When transacting business it is Waikato DHB’s responsibility to supply you with a valid purchase order clearly specifying the goods and/or services it wishes to procure.
It is your responsibility not to supply goods and/or services unless you receive a valid purchase order.
If Waikato DHB receives an invoice without firstly issuing a valid purchase order Waikato DHB may choose not to pay your invoice.
The Business Visitors Policy [PDF, 145 KB] governs all access to the Waikato DHB sites. The current policy means business visitors must sign in as a visitor.
It is vital that supplier details and payments are managed in a manner that will assist with the establishment of a good business relationship from the beginning.
Our new supplier process has been designed and developed to ensure information is exchanged and the administrative process for both parties is established. It establishes the rules of the business relationship to prevent any misunderstanding and clearly states our requirements and expectations.
