Electronic portal for bidding on PHARMAC’s annual tender
PHARMAC’s annual tender e-portal is now available for suppliers to trial.
Before the e-portal goes ‘live’, PHARMAC is providing suppliers with the opportunity to trial and practice with the e-portal and register their company in the system, if they have not already done so, before the release of the 2019/20 Tender. The practice tender will remain open until midnight on Sunday 19 October 2019.
During the trial period suppliers will be able to view, enter and submit bids on a practice tender to learn how the system works. The bids that you submit during this trial period will not be considered as actual bids.
PHARMAC strongly encourages suppliers who are not familiar with the e-portal to register, trial the portal and become familiar with the changes to bidding so that you are ready to respond to the 2019/20 Tender.

Suppliers that intend to bid on the 2019/20 Tender and who have not already done so will need to register their company to gain access to the e-portal. Details of the draft 2019/20 tender, including the draft list of products to be tendered.
