Moving to Connect Suppliers Ariba
Supply Jersey is being replaced by Connect Suppliers Ariba. This is planned for January 2023. We will communicate key dates and how we will support you through this change over the next few months.
Connect Suppliers Ariba will enable more efficient management of orders, invoices, payments and the upload of catalogues.
The implementation of Connect Suppliers Ariba will improve the way suppliers do business with the Government of Jersey, simplifying and standardising the way we work together and removing process complexities. Later phases of the programme will focus on how new tenders are managed and our contract management processes.
The Government will fully support you through the transformation, ensuring there is no interruption in your ability to transact with us.
Nothing will be changing until January 2023, which we will notify you of, and you should continue to use the current purchasing and tender systems until advised otherwise.
Benefits of moving to Connect Suppliers Ariba:
- real time tracking of purchase orders and invoice status on your Connect Suppliers Ariba supplier account dashboard
- easier payment and status reporting
- higher degree of data accuracy from supplier account self maintenance capabilities
- no cost to you to register on Connect Suppliers Ariba or transact with us
Connect Suppliers Ariba, enabled by the ITS Programme
Connect Suppliers Ariba is being delivered by the ITS Programme (Integrated Technology Solution). The ITS Programme will give us better quality of data and information in core functions of government, improving our ability to make informed decisions for frontline services.
