Procurement strategy and thresholds
ANSTO's procurement strategy is to deliver value for money by reducing cost, improving compliance, simplifying processes and reducing risks.
In our efforts to develop a strong partnership with key vendors, suppliers are encouraged to offer options or solutions which, in a novel or innovative way, contribute to ANSTO's ability to carry out its business in a more efficient and cost-effective manner. These may be related to the functional, performance and technical aspects of the requirement or opportunities for more advantageous commercial arrangements.
