The Supply Chain Connector is a procurement database that allows industry to search a list of about 1,100 businesses across the region for free; businesses located in Northern BC can advertise their expertise at no-cost, announced ia recent Initiatives Prince George newsletter.
“This is a one-of-a-kind tool in British Columbia,” said Renata King, Director, Business Development, NDIT. “The Supply Chain Connector is free to use, mobile-enabled and electronically searchable, helping northern BC businesses market themselves to procurement managers.”
