Rio 2016 Launch Procurement Portal

August 8, 2013

The organisers of the Rio 2016 Olympic Games have launched their procurement portal to serve as the main channel of communication between supplier companies.

The new tool will host the organising committee’s purchase schedule until 2016, cialis which is called the Games Demand for Goods and Services Plan.

Rio 2016 say the Procurement Portal is ‘aimed at companies of all sizes that are interested in becoming Rio 2016 suppliers,’ and that the tool ‘promotes competitiveness and transparency.’

Fernando Cotrim, Rio 2016 Procurement Director said: “Building a temporary, solid and sustainable supply chain for the Olympic and Paralympic Games is a great challenge. Therefore, we must have a suppliers database that is prepared to deliver excellent Games.

“We must develop the Brazilian suppliers market in terms of the quality of products and services for great events and aim for a new level of sustainable practices.”

In the portal, companies will also find the Sustainable Supply Chain Guide which describes the sustainable pillars that guide all the requirements of the Organising Committee’s Procurement Area as well as the certifications that Rio 2016 considers competitive differentials in its evaluation processes.
