Commissioning Adelaide PHN - An Australian Government Initiative


The Adelaide PHN (APHN) receives funding from the Australian Government Department of Health to commission services which meet the health needs of the Adelaide metropolitan community.

The APHN Commissioning Governance Framework addresses the five phases of the Commissioning Cycle, click here to see the APHN Commissioning Cycle diagram.

The APHN has established an e-Procurement website through TenderLink, to provide health service providers, contractors, consultants and suppliers with access to a range of commissioning opportunities. Please register and create a profile with Tenderlink  to receive email alerts of new commissioning opportunities as they are advertised.

The APHN has made available a suite of population health resources on our community profile and needs.
