GEA launches new supplier portal
The Gladstone Engineering Alliance (GEA) in partnership with Online Procurement Services and Industry Capability Network Queensland are creating the portal to provide opportunities for local SME suppliers.
GEA chief executive officer Julie Gelder said the portal would give primes a centralised database to identify local suppliers able to assist with their tactical procurement needs as well as ensuring suppliers were aware of opportunities for work and projects across the region.
“For projects managers the CQ Regional Supplier Portal will make it easy to find the right local suppliers, save time and money in project development and ensure local supplier support for the life of the project,” she said.
“For suppliers we plan to offer easy access to the best projects large and small both locally and throughout Central Queensland, including access Australia wide to a comprehensive online system containing more than 60,000 suppliers and around $247 billion of dollars in contracts.”
