Doing Business With Us - Procurement

IWK Health Center (IWK) procurement organization strives to achieve best overall value when acquiring or contracting for goods, services, and intellectual property assets.

Procurement is responsible for expenditures for a wide range of items that include goods and services used internally and by our clients, logistics services and intellectual property. The organization supports the needs of every part of IWK in a centralized and integrated manner.

Procurement is guided by its core values, principles and practices and evaluates supplier performance regularly to ensure that the best products and services are provided to IWK.

All commitments of IWK funds to external suppliers in exchange for products, services or intellectual property assets must be approved by an official procurement organization and Broader Public Sector Supply Procurement Policies and Practices must be followed by all members of IWK Procurement.

Given the important role that suppliers play in our ability to achieve our goals and deliver on the commitments IWK has made to our clients, IWK is committed to developing mutually beneficial relationships with them. These relationships are based on strong principles and IWKs core values of trust, teamwork and accountability
