The client undertakes approximately 200 medical equipment procurements each year without a streamlined approach and using common terms and conditions. Caliba was engaged to create a panel of medical equipment suppliers using an open market approach. The panel enables hospital business units to engage the market through secondary procurement processes. This increases the efficiency and contractual consistency of these procurements.
We engaged with the following stakeholders:
- Directors of Procurement & Medical Equipment, clinical stakeholders across the client’s hospital business units for endorsement of the ‘go-to-market’ approach, specifications and supplier evaluation process
- State Government’s Procurement Board, Industry Advocate and Crown Solicitor’s Office for legal advice, and necessary governance approvals
