Suppliers play an important role in the success of delivering quality educational outcomes at Marist College Ashgrove. If you supply materials or provide services that we are likely to require, then we invite you to register your interest in supplying to Marist College Ashgrove.

Becoming a Supplier

At Marist College Ashgrove (‘College’), we work closely with our suppliers to ensure a consistent standard of supply and a conducive working environment aligned with our College values and standards. We endeavor to match supplier goods and services to the needs of the College, providing a reliable source of supply and economic benefits to the College and the community.

We engage with suppliers and subcontractors who focus on safe, innovative and efficient practices. We chose to work with businesses and personnel who share our core values and work with ethics and integrity, to a standard of excellence and who work to a Code of Conduct in line with our own. We are committed to providing a fair evaluation and selection process that is applied consistently to all prospective suppliers.

How We Operate

It is a requirement that our suppliers and subcontractors comply with all relevant industry standards and to exceed those standards where possible across our College.

Our Supply Chain is managed by our Finance Office; a small, internal team within the College tasked with increasing value by exercising procurement expertise and leveraging consolidated spend requirements. This team work with departments in the College to identify needs and sources of supply; initiate requests for goods and services; negotiate pricing and contracts; and manage supplier relationships.

We adopt uniform procedures for establishing, negotiating, awarding and administering contracts with suppliers.

We have policies in place which govern how each department in the College manages their budgets and the appropriation of funds, including approval limits and established processes, creating consistency and accountability for our College.
