Development of Questions for the Medical Devices Technology Industry Supply Chain Index
Department of Industry, Innovation and Science | Published November 16, 2015 - Deadline December 11, 2015
The Customer is seeking a medical device technology industry expert (being an entity that can demonstrate that they possess the staff, industry knowledge and experience to deliver the required services) who is knowledgeable about the constraints and obstacles hindering small and medium enterprises (SMEs) from accessing and successfully supplying into the medical device technology sector.
The ultimate goal is to engage with key buyers from across the medical device technology industry and understand what they look for in a potential supplier. The task is not just about the initial engagement and surveying of buyers, but having their endorsement and ownership of the tool’s development.
To complete the project, the industry expert must have established global networks, or be able to access key senior personnel within large buying entities in the medical device technology sector. The engagement of associations may be important in accessing these buying entities, but it is critical the individual entities are engaged.
The desired output of the procurement will be a set of industry approved, tested and weighted questions which enable the benchmarking of SME capability and their ability to supply into the sector.
