About the Procurement Tool Kit

What is the Procurement Tool Kit?

The Procurement Tool Kit has been developed by Motivation Australia to help health and rehabilitation service providers better understand the process of procuring supplies.

It is a collection of resources that explains each step of procurement, so personnel can make more informed procurement decisions.

The Procurement Tool Kit uses specific examples of procuring assistive technology (AT), rehabilitation and diabetic foot care (DFC) supplies, however the procurement principles could be applied to other health services.
