VendorPanel connects buyers with verified social enterprise & supplier diversity databases, on a platform that they already use
This puts social, disability and Indigenous-owned businesses at the heart of mainstream supplier discovery and sourcing activity
Partnering with bodies representing Australia's leading social enterprises shows the transformative power of the New Procurement
What leveraging procurement spend for social impact looks like:
Give buyers all verified suppliers in one place: Innovative technology brings prequalified suppliers from leading social procurement organisations together on one secure procurement platform.
Make it easy to follow sourcing best practice: Geo-location makes it easy to find local, verified suppliers. Award-winning tools simplify the sourcing, evaluation and selection process and ensure good governance and probity.
Generate insights from your data: Reporting and governance controls ensure transparency, while analytics allow reporting against policy, CSR targets and initiatives like Victoria's Social Procurement Framework.
ProcureForGood is a VendorPanel initiative that makes it easier to leverage procurement spend to drive positive social outcomes.
It uses the innovative technology within the VendorPanel platform to provide corporate and government organisations with a better way to find and get quotes from suppliers that have been verified by leading social procurement and supplier diversity authorities.
In the context of a policy initiative such as the Federal Indigenous Procurement Policy (IPP), Victoria Government Social Procurement Framework, and Corporate RAPs and CSR, use of VendorPanel enables real-time cross-enterprise reporting against social procurement targets.
