CSIRO Supplier Portal - our new way of doing business

As part of our procurement upgrade, we have now transitioned to our new supplier management process.

Our valued current and new suppliers are required to transact with us via the CSIRO Supplier Portal, hosted by SAP Ariba Business Network (SAP Business Network or ‘SAP Ariba’).

Through the CSIRO Supplier Portal, suppliers will have the opportunity to manage their own data, receive CSIRO purchase orders, and create and submit invoices.

This platform caters to small, medium and large businesses.

More details and access can be found at CSIRO Supplier Portal Information

Suppliers can email for support.

Future procurement activities with CSIRO

Please note that registering and updating of vendor information on the SAP Ariba Business Network does not guarantee any future procurement activities with CSIRO.

Annual Procurement Plan (APP)

The Annual Procurement Plan (APP) provides information on significant procurements CSIRO plan to undertake over the next twelve months. The APP includes a concise strategic procurement outlook statement, which broadly discusses any key, major or strategic initiative from which CSIRO expects procurement to arise.

You can view CSIRO’s current financial year procurement plan on AusTender.

Suppliers are encouraged to visit the AusTender website to register their interest and obtain notification of planned procurements being released to the open market.

How to respond to CSIRO tenders

CSIRO conducts procurements over $400,000 through the Australian Government’s AusTender System and tenders are published on the AusTender website.

Tenders must be submitted electronically through AusTender by the closing time and date specified in the tender documents. Late applications will not be accepted. At the sole and absolute discretion of CSIRO, the closing time and date may be extended.

How to use AusTender

For more information regarding using AusTender, see the AusTender Terms of Use. Refer to section 1.7 - Lodgement Process Guidance and click on the 'Help guidance' link for the up to date AusTender Public User Guide.
