Information relating to procurement procedures, tendering and contracts.
Annual procurement plan
Our annual procurement plan (APP) outlines our expected procurement activity over the next 12 months. Access our APP from AusTender's Annual Procurement Plan List on the AusTender website. This meets the Commonwealth Procurement Rules.

Gifts and benefits register
We maintain a list of gifts and benefits accepted by staff in the course of their duties.
We follow the Commonwealth Grants Rules and Guidelines (CGRGs) for efficient, effective and ethical administration of our grants.
We’ve recorded our grants in the Community Innovation through Collaboration measure as at September 2014.
Public interest certificates (PICs)
The Commonwealth Procurement Rules and the Government Procurement (Judicial Review) Act 2018 govern our procurement complaint handling process.
We can issue a public interest certificate (PIC) to allow a procurement to continue if there’s a relevant complaint. We can do this at any stage of the procurement, including before we receive a complaint. We do this when it’s not in the public interest to stop a procurement while we investigate the complaint. Our Chief Executive Officer or delegate signs a PIC.
If you use assistive technology and can’t access our certificates, please contact us. We’ll help you access them.
