Procurement and Supply Chain

Monash Health Procurement and Supply Chain is responsible for managing the end-to-end process of obtaining goods and services for Monash Health.

  • Strategic Sourcing, including managing tenders
  • Managing the Procure to Pay (P2P) process
  • Supply chain management
  • Logistics and transport support
  • Contract management support
  • Vendor performance and relationship management
  • Monitoring probity practice when dealing with the vendor community
  • Managing engagements with Health Purchasing Victoria (HPV)

As a Victorian public health service, Monash Health must be fully compliant with all relevant Federal and State government legislation when engaging with vendors, including but not limited to:

  • Finance Management Act 1994
  • Standing Directions of the Minister of Finance issued pursuant to the Financial Management Act 1994 (in particular Direction 3.4.5)

Loading Dock

The Loading Dock at Monash Medical Centre Clayton has been designed to optimise the flow of deliveries and ensure safety. It is not a carpark. Suppliers are encouraged to ensure their drivers / couriers understand and comply with our Loading Dock Traffic Management Plan.

Complaints Management

Procurement Complaints Management: Procedure and Background . These documents outline how Monash Health responds to complaints related to procurement activities and processes.

Tenders

We have a contractor registration and pre-qualification system to:

  • Classify contractors commensurate with their quality, safety and environmental management systems, technical and resource capability, financial position and overall past performance
  • Streamline the process of tender/quote preparation, submission, and evaluation by significantly reducing the amount of information to be provided in the tender/quote response
  • Provide a degree of protection to both Monash Health and contractors against over-commitment
  • Ensure preferred contractors are provided with the ability to tender/quote for work within Southern Health

Before you can tender or quote for works at Monash Health, within certain value limits you need to

  • register online through Ipro liVe
  • pay the prescribed fee
  • be fully compliant with our prequalification requirements prior to lodgment of any tender or quote.

You will then be placed in panel groups according to the Associations you chose in Ipro liVe.

The annual fee is $275 or $550 including GST depending on the number of employees within the company.

Further information is available through the Ipro LiVe website
