Tenders and contracts
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.

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.
