Dear Colleagues,

The Centralized Procurement集中採購 that had been initiated for more than a year has proven effective in helping departments streamlining administrative procedures among their heavy daily work.

Over a year of reviewing and adjusting to the departments’ need in their purchasing, there is a strong desire from departments that the Centralized Procurement shall continue to serve as a channel of bulk purchasing in negotiating for a more competitive price and better service. Here are the details of this year’s schedule.

(The information below requires follow-up and timely action. Please forward this email to your staff in charge of procurement in your unit.)

Items that fall into the following four categories will be handled through Centralized Procurement. Therefore, units are encouraged to plan ahead their purchase plan. Please refer to the purchase calendar below. PCT will announce two calls each year for collecting purchase requests of these items.

The first call for Furniture is open from now to 28 Feb 2019, 5:30 p.m.
