New electronic portal for bidding on PHARMAC’s annual tender

Medicines Tender Closed

New e-portal for PHARMAC’s annual tender now available to trial.

Before the e-portal goes ‘live’, PHARMAC is providing suppliers with two weeks to trial the e-portal and register their company in the system before the release of the 2017/18 Tender. The practice tender will remain open until midnight on Sunday 22 October 2017.

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 to be actual bids. PHARMAC strongly encourages suppliers to register, trial the portal and become familiar with the changes to bidding so that you are ready to respond to the 2017/18 Tender.

Suppliers that intend to bid on the 2017/18 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 2017/18 tender, including the draft list of products to be tendered.
