After a step-by-step explanation about registration in the Açu Procurement Portal for local entrepreneurs intent on becoming suppliers to the Port Complex, the Port of Açu organized a new meeting with the group to instruct them on operating the platform. After registration in the portal, entrepreneurs learned what is needed to participate in online processes in the future. Training was split into two classes (Campos and São João da Barra), and carried out yesterday in the enterprise’s Visitor Center. The event was held in partnership with Sebrae/RJ (Brazilian Micro and Small Business Support Service in Rio de Janeiro), as part of the Local Supplier Development Program (PDFL), whose goal is to prepare businesses that wish to provide services to the Port Complex. According to Douglas Pinheiro, Supply coordinator of the Port of Açu, the portal was created to speed up the enterprise’s procurement processes.
“The Açu Procurement Portal will make it easier for entrepreneurs to check the port’s demands, while bringing more efficiency and transparency to the whole bidding and supplier selection processes, as all participants will be able to track them online,” he said.

Açu Procurement Portal
The Açu Procurement Portal has been live for one month and is the new media to register companies interested in providing all kinds of services inside the port. Implemented in partnership with SAP Ariba, the portal allows online bidding and procurement. Suppliers can register directly on the website (portodoacu.supplier.ariba.com), which also showcases the port’s demands.
Data about suppliers registered in the Procurement Portal are available to companies in the Port Complex and to other users of the platform, generating new business opportunities.
