The Invitation to Supply template has been developed for use in request for quote, request for tender or as part of a multi stage procurement process. The template comprises five parts:
- Introduction - provides a framework for the invitation
- Part A - The Invitation
-Part A.1 - About this invitation details the procurement opportunity
-Part A.2 - Specification describes the goods and/or services the Organisation is seeking from interested parties
- Part B - Conditions of Participation sets out the rules applying to the Invitation process. It is divided into rules applicable to the Victorian Government and Organisation specific.
- Part C - Proposed contract- space is provided to include the proposed contract.
- Part D - the Offer- space is provided to include the Offer template
(Part D - has deliberately been left blank to ensure that the Offer template is developed to address the requirements of the procurement. For further information about developing a template you may wish to refer to the Guide-to-developing-an-Offer-template.docx
The invitation to supply template can be used in a single or multi stage procurement process to invite offers from suppliers. In the case of multi stage procurement would follow an Expression of Interest process.
