Register as a Purchaser
YOU WILL NEED TO COMPLETE THE PURCHASER TRAINING MODULE BEFORE YOU ARE ABLE TO INITIATE AND MANAGE TENDER PROCESSES ON GETS. FOR MORE GUIDANCE ON THE PROCUREMENT PROCESS PLEASE USE THE RESOURCES AVAILABLE ON THE PROCUREMENT WEBSITE.
To register as a purchaser you must be an employee or authorised agent of an eligible organisation.
You should first contact your organisation's GETS Administrator (ETCO) or the person responsible for purchasing in your organisation who will be able to create your account. If you don't know who this is you can contact the GETS helpdesk who will have your administrator's details.
If you are acting as an agent of a purchasing organisation you must have an agreement with the organisation which clearly states you are authorised to act on their behalf and also details the scope of your work and any specific responsibilities or processes you will need to follow. The GETS administrator at MBIE may need a copy of that agreement before your account can be created.
If your organisation is not already configured in GETS it will need to be created, this is a simple process that is managed by MBIE. They will be advised of your request by the GETS Helpdesk and will contact you for further information.
You may be required to complete an eligibility test to determine whether your organisation is able to use GETS as a purchaser before your account can be created.
Once your account has been created you will need to complete an online training module which covers all the processes you will use to initiate and manage tenders on GETS. The training should take no more than an hour and also serves as a reference guide for future use.
If you are an Administrator for your organisation's account there is additional support and guidance available through MBIE. You can access this through the GETS Helpdesk.
There is a wealth of supporting guidance and information available on the Procurement website with a comprehensive suite to guides, tools and templates to help with every aspect of the procurement process.
