How to buy

Buyers can access the scheme through eQuote. It allows buyers to download supplier lists, create and issue requests for quotes/proposals and award contracts online. eQuote training is available for agencies.

To get access to eQuote, please contact your agency's eTendering administrator to have the appropriate role (agency buyer) added to your NSW eTendering profile.

If your organisation does not have access to the eQuote system and you need urgent access to supplier lists, please email
