Open up opportunities with ICN Gateway

This powerful online tool contains around $290 billion worth of projects and around 70,000 suppliers. It is a simple and easy way to engage with and maximise Australian content, whilst at the same time, implement second and third tier supply opportunities.

 

ICN Gateway can be used as the primary location for communicating upcoming procurement and contracting opportunities by creating your own tailored project page. Suppliers are able to browse and register their interest in new business opportunities, all in one location.

We can either manage the project page exclusively, or train procurement personnel within the project to manage it themselves.

ICN Gateway helps you to:

  • promote procurement and contracting opportunities – through a tailored project site that allows local suppliers and sub-contractors to register their interest
  • clearly define the scope of the project – by separating work packages into categories and attaching a scope of works so suppliers and contractors can easily assess their suitability in the package
  • Manage the supplier registration process by viewing expressions of interest in particular packages in real time
  • Maximum exposure of the project - with automatic notifications sent to all registered companies once a new package is listed.

ICN Gateway is currently used to manage around $400 billion worth of projects including:
