DSM Procurement (DSMP)
DSMP is responsible for the procurement of all capital equipment and equipment related services and consumables as well as all corporate, multi-discipline and ancillary requirements.
DSMP utilizes the United Nations recommended UN Model Procurement Law in the form of Non-Binding Negotiated (NBN) competitive bid documents. The NBN format is revocable and non-binding and is governed under the General Law of Contracts rather than Canadian Competitive Bid Law.
DSM as a MASH sector entity adheres to the requirements under the Agreement on Internal Trade (AIT) and other national trade agreements and as such is subject to the Canadian International Trade Tribunal (CITT) guidelines and government judicial review . Competitive bids are posted to our tender service partner: Biddingo at www.biddingo.com.
Non-capital equipment and consumables are procured by the specific laboratory and/or Regional Health Authority.
Capital Equipment is considered to be items costing a minimum of $2,000 and associated with Laboratory or Diagnostic Imaging functions.
All capital equipment purchasing and leasing is facilitated through DSMP.
The benefits of this process includes economies of scale, workflow planning and management, adherence to governmental purchasing regulations and ensuring appropriate use of funds, as well as technical compliance with Provincial standards.
DSMP recognizes the value of good supplier relationships in order to meet Diagnostic Services of Manitoba patient needs.
DSMP terms and conditions are provided on-line for supplier reference.
