The variation in specifications of various catalogue products, coupled with the varying requirements of the Members, produce a situation in which clear comparisons between tender submissions are impossible to make. The situation is exacerbated by the fact that these are often not regular purchase items but rather a once or twice a year event, quite often of a high dollar value that requires some comparative quoting. This makes creating formal TAG contract categories difficult.
To that end, a number of these categories are better represented by the TAG Endorsed Supplier program.
Please consider the endorsed suppliers representing the categories in every instance that you require pricing on their respective products. There will be up to three endorsed suppliers for each of the categories so that you can source competetive quotes from each if necessary.
The TAG endorsement is designed to give you peace of mind in that each of the endorsed suppliers has a relationship with TAG, and that they understand the complex needs of TAG Members. They also understand the potential value to them of TAG, and are aware that there will be, in most instances, an endorsed competitor against which they may have to prove themselves. This should ensure that price, quality and service remains at an acceptable level.
You will be updated each time a new endorsed supplier is added. (Please note that some of the links below will be activated shortly, once final details are confirmed).
