GPO seeks to obtain maximum value for each dollar, to acquire goods and services without prejudice and to develop robust relationships with our suppliers, which not only assure us of competitive prices but also protect us against interruption of supply.
We have moved into an electronic sourcing platform, Source Key , with effect from 15 May 2013 and SESAMi (S) Pte Ltd (SESAMi) has been appointed as our business partner for online sourcing.
All open RFI/RFQ/RFP notices will be posted on Source Key and GPO website for products and services that are procured through GPO. Institutions’ own purchases are also posted on Source Key. As a supplier, you will now be able to access and respond to RFI/RFQ/RFP online under our Healthcare Opportunities .
For drug purchases, please refer to Singhealth (Pharma) .
Only suppliers who have registered with SESAMi will be given a Login ID to download our RFI/RFQ/RFP documents. Submission of bids will be done electronically via the Source Key portal supported by SESAMi.
To register as our supplier, please complete the Online Supplier Registration Form from Source Key Login page.
