ACSA launches new member service for better procurement solutions

Release date: 12 Nov 2019

The peak body Aged & Community Services Australia (ACSA) has today launched the ACSA Procurement Portal, connecting members to a wide choice of suppliers and new procurement tools.

ACSA CEO, Patricia Sparrow said, “The ACSA Procurement Portal is designed to ensure providers are compliant with regulations, including the Aged Care Quality Standards and the Modern Slavery Act, while making substantial savings through bulk purchasing.  Online pricing comparison tools will support providers in their purchasing decisions."

Core ACSA Procurement Portal services are:

  1. ACSA Catalogue: where members can search, compare and buy products online;
  2. ACSA Procurement Apps: a range of applications including tenders, request for quotation (RFQs), contract management, WHS, site management, asset management & collaboration tools such as document sharing, forums and messaging; and
  3. ACSA Marketplace: assist members in meeting supply chain compliance

Over time other features delivering even better value will be added.

“The portal has some of the best strategic procurement technology available to support not for profit, church and charitable aged care providers get the best possible prices for products.  This kind of surety means they can focus on the most important thing which is delivering quality care for older Australians,” Ms Sparrow said.
