Ireland launches website to handle offers to health service

The Irish Office of Government Procurement has launched a site to accommodate offers companies wish to make to support the health service through the coronavirus pandemic.

The Government announcement on the website launch said:

“Since COVID-19 arrived in Ireland, businesses and other organisations have been contacting Government and the HSE to offer their assistance with goods and services. A webpage has now been created to capture these offers in one central database, so that Government can ensure they are available to the right parts of the public service.

“Commenting on the new webpage, which was developed by the Office of Government Procurement with support from the Office of the Government Chief Information Officer, the Minister for Business, Enterprise and Innovation, Ms. Heather Humphreys T.D. said: ‘Ever since the scale of the challenge of COVID-19 became clear, businesses and organisations of all sizes, from right across the country, have come forward to offer their critical support to our public services. These offers of assistance have made a key contribution to our efforts to combat the spread of COVID-19 and I want to thank those behind each and every offer received.

“‘This new online portal will provide one central repository for all future offers and help ensure that we can direct them as efficiently as possible across the Government system. I would urge any business or organisation that is considering offering assistance to the State, to please register your support on gov.ie/covidsupplies'”
