How to access HealthPRO
HealthPRO is committed to providing suppliers with the ability to access our contract opportunities. To comply with the Agreement on Internal Trade, all Request for Information (RFI), Request for Qualification (RFQ) and Request for Proposal (RFP) opportunities are publicly posted on Biddingo - a national electronic bulletin board.
Contract opportunities are not sent out from HealthPRO directly, and suppliers must register with Biddingo to view and respond to HealthPRO contract opportunities.
Biddingo offers a variety of options to assist you in identifying posting opportunities; we encourage you to visit their website at www.biddingo.com/healthpro
for further details.
Request for Information (RFI): An RFI is issued in order to obtain information about the product quality, breadth of available products, business capabilities and strengths of suppliers to meet contract requirements. An RFI does not request pricing information.
Request for Qualification (RFQ): Similar to an RFI, an RFQ is issued in order to obtain information about the product quality, breadth of products, business capabilities and strengths of suppliers to meet contract requirements. However, with an RFQ, suppliers’ products are measured against specific criteria, and only those suppliers who meet the requirements are invited to respond to the RFP.
Request for Proposal (RFP): An RFP is a request for suppliers to submit a financial proposal on specific products or services. An RFP may be posted publically, meaning that any supplier is welcome to respond, or privately, meaning that only those suppliers’ whose products were prequalified through an RFQ are invited to respond.
