Annual procurement plan

In accordance with the Commonwealth Procurement Rules, we are required to publish an Annual Procurement Plan (APP) on the Australia Government's AusTender website. The APP notifies the market of expected procurement activity over the next 12 months. Our APP can be accessed on the AusTender's Annual Procurement Plan List on the AusTender website.

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 is 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 Secretary or delegate signs a PIC.

If you use assistive technology and can’t access our certificates, please contact us. We can help you access them.
