What is a preferred vendor arrangement, and how do they operate?

Western Power uses 'preferred vendor arrangement' for many contracts. Preferred vendor arrangements are established following a tender process to pre-qualify suppliers for specific goods or services. Being a preferred vendor does not guarantee any work, however it does ensure that the ordering process under the arrangement is more streamlined and does not require suppliers to resubmit their standard safety, environment and quality information, or departures from the commercial documentation.
