Purchase orders

A purchase order (PO) is a contract (or part of a contract) issued by Queensland Health to the supplier. It includes:

  • a PO number and date
  • an item description, quantity and price
  • a delivery location and date
  • contact details
  • a link to Queensland Health terms and conditions.

It is important suppliers check the pricing of the goods or services on the purchase order. If this is incorrect, the supplier must notify Queensland Health as soon as possible.

All open purchase orders will be migrated to the new S/4HANA system from 1 August. This will have no impact on suppliers.

Invoice formats for suppliers to Biomedical Technology Services (BTS) and Central Pharmacy should be processed via the existing BTS and i.Pharmacy formats. Suppliers should also note their unique email addresses.
