There are many benefits for suppliers who work with Medbuy. It's an opportunity to grow your business while providing Canada's health services providers with tremendous value. In return, the supplier community has always been able to depend upon our Members’ high-level of contract compliance.
So how do you become a Medbuy supplier? First, your company must be awarded a contract following a full RFP process. Our membership entrusts us with public monies and as such, Medbuy adheres to a fair and equitable sourcing process that meets federal and provincial regulations such as the Ontario Broader Public Sector Procurement Directive.
Starting November 1, 2011, all suppliers wishing to find Medbuy opportunities and submit bids only have to visit one website - www.biddingo.com/medbuy.
1. Find Opportunities
We post all of our contract opportunities (Request for Proposals) at www.biddingo.com/medbuy.
Biddingo is a fee-based, public procurement website for provincial, municipal, education, crown corporation, construction and healthcare sectors across Canada.
Medbuy does not directly distribute a list of current opportunities or post a list on our website. As such, we strongly recommend that interested suppliers regularly monitor Biddingo for potential opportunities.
We do have a list of our existing contracts, so suppliers can see the products and services currently available to our membership. Click here to view our existing contracts.
2. Register Online
We encourage all potential suppliers to obtain a Biddingo subscription account, so you can download Medbuy RFP documents and access Biddingo's Electronic Bidding (eBidding) System to submit bids. Please note you must activate an eBidding feature on your Biddingo subscription account to have access to the eBidding system.
A supplier can obtain an account at any time and there is no need to wait for a specific contract opportunity to do so.
Suppliers interested in submitting a bid must first register using the Medbuy Vendor Registration Form at www.biddingo.com/medbuy. You only have to register with us once – and when you are approved, you are approved for all Medbuy bids on Biddingo.
We recommend that suppliers register for access well in advance of an RFP event, since the process could take up to two (2) business days to complete.
3. Respond to RFP
Using Biddingo's eBidding System, you can submit bids for Medbuy opportunities electronically, directly through Biddingo. To access the eBidding System, you'll need to register as outlined above in step two.
For more information on the eBidding System and how to use it, please contact Biddingo at firstname.lastname@example.org or (416) 756-0955 or download a user training guide now.
