From: Office of Government Procurement https://ogp.gov.ie
Since the arrival of Covid-19 in Ireland, many businesses have contacted Government bodies to offer support through the supply or donation of goods and services. The Office of Government Procurement, on behalf of Department of the Taoiseach, has now created a central database of these offers on behalf of the whole of the public service, including the HSE.
If your Department, or bodies under the aegis, have previously received offers of goods or services to assist in Ireland’s response to COVID-19, I would ask that you now direct those businesses to gov.ie/covidsupplies and ask them to submit complete details of their offer.
A template email for suppliers who have previously made offers is attached. Also attached is a further template for suppliers who make contact now that this process is in place.
It should be noted that this database is provided solely for this emergency period. This service does not replace the normal procurement procedures already in place.
Please consult the OGP website for further information on Covid-19 (Coronavirus) and Public Procurement.
Please ensure that this is initiative is also brought to the attention of bodies under the aegis of your Department.
