There are two sourcing methods available under the Local Buying Program including ‘Request for Quote’ and ‘Sole Source’.
- Request for Quote (RFQ) requirements will be communicated via email to suppliers that match their registered category and service area. Work opportunities (Work Instructions) are available for quoting in the Supplier’s Workspace
- Sole Source (SS) requirements will be communicated to a nominated supplier if the work opportunity (Work Instruction) meets approved criteria for sole sourcing. Work opportunities (Work Instructions) are available for quoting in the Supplier’s Workspace
RFQ is the preferred method of communicating Work Instructions as it gives more opportunities to suppliers who may be able to meet the scope of the work required.
