Information for suppliers
Rural Northwest Health is committed to the health purchasing policies issued by Health Purchasing Victoria (HPV) that became mandatory on July 1, 2016. More information on procurement reform including a link to the HPV policies can be found on the HPV website.
The Procurement Complaints Procedure document outlines the procedure that Rural Northwest Health uses to respond to a procurement activity or process complaint.

(Please note that these are indications only. No guarantee to procure is given or intended.)
