Purchasing and procurement at Cabrini is a structured process that allows a fair way to provide goods and services to hospitals and facilities.
Cabrini is only interested in dealing with suppliers that provide goods and services that are fit for purpose, that contribute to patients’ well-being, are ethically sourced and are fairly priced.
Within the overarching Cabrini mission, purchasing and procurement is governed to ensure fair play, open and transparent dialogue and contribute to our local economy. We are concerned with maintenance of high standards and demand suppliers endorse ethical trading standards, ensuring patient care and human rights are held in the highest esteem.
As a not-for-profit health care provider Cabrini is concerned with paying fair market prices for its goods and services.
Cabrini’s procurement policy is designed to ensure all staff at Cabrini, as well as suppliers understand the way Cabrini sources goods and services. This policy mandates fair play and transparency.
Where possible we will seek to trade with local businesses and will support marginalised and disadvantaged groups and individuals.
Suppliers must have a purchase order before they can invoice Cabrini. Invoices presented to Cabrini with no associated purchase order will be returned to the supplier unpaid.
Cabrini’s ethical sourcing respects human dignity and is aligned with the preservation of our environment. Cabrini will not knowingly support any industry that engages in any form of modern slavery. Our Ethical Sourcing code uses the following documents as reference points:
Cabrini has established standard terms of trade. Suppliers are expected to always comply with Cabrini’s terms of trade.
