Are You Registered to Compete for Contracts Associated with the John Hart and North Island Hospital Projects?
The Major Projects Portal is a strategically developed site, targeted at major project bid proponents, and is a one-stop, local supplier and community resource centre. The site will maximize the economic opportunities flowing from major construction projects in the area. Recently the portal launched an accommodation section of the website for suppliers for local accommodation.
Why should you should register as a supplier? Prime contractors are able to browse the profiles of registered suppliers, to gauge what trades, resources and materials are available locally. Registering on the site allows local suppliers to create a tailored profile for a major project’s prime contractor to browse. This is an opportunity for you and your business to be seen, contacted and engaged by major project decision makers. Click here to register today.
