In line with common business practice, the University of Tasmania issues purchase orders for all approved spend. As a supplier to the University, receiving and quoting a purchase order on all invoices and correspondence allows for efficient and timely invoicing processing and payment.
Suppliers should not commence any services or provide goods to the University without an upfront purchase order.
Our suppliers are asked to register via the Unimarket e-marketplace (PurchaseNow) portal and there are many benefits for doing so including:
Ability to track purchase orders and payments from the University of Tasmania
Invoices can be automatically generated by Unimarket to match the purchase order.
Alternatively invoices will need to be emailed (one at a time) directly to firstname.lastname@example.org for automatic matching to the purchase order.
Store and verify information about you as our supplier and your goods and services, and also as a tool to communicate with you.
Registration is free and needs to be completed by an appropriate representative of your organisation who is able to provide a basic company profile. Please be aware registration does not guarantee any future business with the University. However, it does enable us to purchase from you more easily and quickly.
The supplier/buyer relationship stays the same. This is about the method of how we source and pay for the goods and services we require.
TENDERS All tenders for University business will be lodged through Tenderlink. Please register and update your profile so you are alerted for any new tenders in your area of business. Access our e-Tendering Portal here.
PURCHASE ORDERS & QUOTES Unimarket e-Marketplace (PurchaseNow) is our portal through which all existing suppliers receive Purchase Orders or Request for Quotes from the University.
