Tenders and contracts

We are a Commonwealth statutory authority which provides services to the Australian maritime industry. Sometimes we need to seek the help and support of private companies to deliver our services.

We follow the Commonwealth purchasing rules to make it fair for everyone involved. This includes seeking expressions of interest (EOI) and requests for tender (RFT).

All EOIs and RFTs are published on AusTender and not on our website.

We also publish an Annual Procurement Plan (APP) on AusTender. The APP contains information on our expected major procurements for the coming financial year.

Senate Order for entity contracts

The Senate Order for entity contracts (known as the Murray Motion) sets out our active contracts to the value of A$100,000 or more (GST inclusive) entered into by the department which has not been fully performed or which has been entered into in the previous 12 months.

Contract lists


Most of the contracts listed contain confidentiality provisions of a general nature which are designed to protect the confidential information which may be obtained in carrying out the contract.

The reasons for including such provisions include:

  • ordinary commercial prudence which requires protection of trade secrets, proprietary information and the like and/or
  • protection of other Commonwealth material and personal information.

Our accountable authority assures you that the listed contracts do not contain any inappropriate confidentiality provisions.

Procurement contracts are available through the AusTender website.
