Preferred vendors are accredited suppliers with whom UCT has negotiated best price, quality and service. Preferred vendors must be used wherever possible.
Preferred vendors are identified on the basis of:
Some preferred vendor agreements originate from collaborative purchasing by universities resulting from tender processes.
Preferred vendor pricing is reviewed by an independent benchmarking company quarterly or bi-annually but PPS is dependent on the UCT community for feedback on service and quality.
Note: Listing on SAP does not automatically imply preferred vendor status.
