Doing Business with us
The St. Michael’s House Procurement Unit was established in May 2016 and is responsible for the sourcing and acquisition of all above-threshold goods and services required by St. Michael’s House.
The primary objectives of the St. Michael’s House Procurement Policy and Procedures are to ensure that all transactions:
- represent the best value for money;
- leverage the organisation’s purchasing power;
- are transparent;
- ensure equality of access for suitably-qualified suppliers, service providers and contractors;
- are compliant with EU Directives, national regulations, Government and HSE guidelines applicable to Section 38 Agencies.
St. Michael’s House is committed to ensuring that its procurement activities are conducted with probity and integrity, and that they conform to the core principles of accountability, competition, equal treatment, fairness and transparency. To this end, a further objective of the Procurement Unit is to:
ensure the organisation’s Procurement Policy and Procedures, along with Irish and EU procurement regulations, are understood and observed by all staff involved in purchasing activities.
It is St. Michael’s House policy to advertise its above-threshold tender requirements using the Irish Government portal, eTenders (www.etenders.gov.ie).
The eTenders portal has been designed as a central platform for all public sector contracting authorities to advertise tender opportunities and award notices. The site forms a key element in the government's strategy for the implementation of eProcurement across the Irish public sector.
The Procurement Unit has responsibility for developing and publishing notices on behalf of St. Michael’s House.
We advise companies interested in doing business with us to register with www.etenders.gov.ie and to check for tenders that may be relevant to them.
