Procurement Practices in the Health Sector – Victorian Auditor General’s Office – 26 October 2011

“Public hospitals spent more than $1.6 billion on goods and services in the last financial year. This procurement activity should demonstrate integrity, transparency and value-for-money. Health Purchasing Victoria (HPV) performs central procurement for the sector well, has expanded the range of products centrally procured and is making significant savings. However, 10 years after its establishment, HPV is yet to implement all its functions under the Health Services Act 1988 or exploit its full potential. By not undertaking its probity assurance function, and having only limited involvement in procuring medical equipment, HPV has missed opportunities for greater savings and better procurement practice.
