SA HEALTH SUPPLIER CONFERENCE

Partnering with SA Health

SA Health’s partnerships with suppliers enable the delivery of health services to all South Australians.

In 2017 SA Health held its inaugural Supplier Conference with the aim to formalise our partnering approach and provide an opportunity to meet key SA Health stakeholders.

Now in its second year, the annual Supplier Conference now forms a strong element of SA Health’s ongoing Supplier Relationship Management process and assists in identifying opportunities to improve the way we partner with our suppliers.

The 2018 Conference has been designed to provide:

Knowledge and information sharing opportunities regarding procurement processes and SA Health’s vision for engaging with its suppliers.

Knowledge and information from key government agencies regarding opportunities that can be leveraged by doing business in South Australia.

Suppliers with the identification of procurement opportunities through the sharing of SA Health’s Forward Procurement Plan.

Concurrent sessions designed to target the different needs of SA Health’s suppliers.

Meaningful and adequate opportunities to engage with SA Health and SA Government representatives.

PROGRAM

The dynamic conference program will consist of keynote plenary sessions and panel discussion, featuring invited Government and Industry representatives.
