EOI for supply of purchased books

The Library is seeking expressions of interest from suppliers to provide fulfilment services for the purchase of books published in Australia and overseas.

In accordance with NSW Government procurement guidelines, the State Library of New South Wales is now seeking expressions of interest (EOI) from suppliers able to provide fulfilment services for the purchase of books published in Australia and overseas (US, UK and Europe).

The Library is seeking suppliers who have an excellent knowledge of publishers in each geographic area, as well as the capacity to provide a range of flexible and efficient services to the required standard and competitive pricing to support cost-effective use by the Library’s staff.

The EOI for the Supply of Purchased Books is now available on the NSW eTenders website and will be open until 10:00am 9 November 2017.

Question: 

Can you advise what your budget is for overseas books please?

Answer: 

The Library is unable to provide details of its collection budget. Information on the number of overseas titles purchased is available on request.

Question: 

Is there a response form sheet we may have so we can create a draft before submitting our response online?

Answer: 

PDF versions of the forms are available below. Please note that all responses must be submitted using the online form.

Expression of Interest Application Form - Australian Books

Expression of Interest Application Form - US, UK & European Books

Question

We would like to express our interest in both geographic areas, “Australian” and “US, UK & European,” but the form only provides the option to choose one of them. What’s the best way for us to submit our EOI for consideration for both regions?

Answer

You will need to submit a separate response for each geographic area as the forms are different. We suggest opening two browser windows and using the copy/paste function for common fields.
