Hi all

I am pleased to announce that a Request for Tender (RFT) to establish a new whole-of-Australian Government (WoAG) Panel Arrangement for Stationery and Office Supplies (SOS) products and services has been released on AusTender, and this can be downloaded from FIN/018/16.

The arrangement seeks to meet the government’s SOS product and services requirements and deliver value for money.

Finance has just finished analysis of AusTender procurement data for 2015-16, and we’ve published the annual statistics on our website

As always, the data tells the story. The evidence it provides is the foundation for good policy development.

The annual statistics continue to demonstrate the strong performance of Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) and small businesses in government procurement market. 


The Minister of Finance has announced the establishment of the Whole-of-Australian-Government Telecommunications Services Panel (TSP) SON 3386916.

Finance has entered into head agreements with an initial tranche of six successful tenderers. The head agreements are in place until 30 November 2020, with options to extend for up to three periods of up to 12 months each.

Hi all

The Whole of Australian Government (WoAG) Stationery and Office Supplies (SOS) Arrangement, used by 140 Commonwealth Departments and entities Australia-wide, is due to expire in September 2017.  The Arrangement, which has an annual turnover of approximately $38 million, has delivered savings and efficiencies to Government. This has resulted in a high level of stakeholder support for a successor arrangement.

Hi all,

The current Whole of Australian Governments (WoAG) Accommodation Program Management arrangement is due to expire in June 2017.

Finance is seeking comments on the draft Statement of Requirement (SOR) on the broader service objectives and requirements for a new WoAG accommodation arrangement.  The draft SOR includes explanatory notes which provide clarification on the outcomes being sought.

The Australian Public Service is committed to employing people with disability and creating inclusive work environments that reflect the diversity of the Australian community. To do so we need to ensure the ICT goods and services we buy are accessible for all employees. 

I am pleased to announce that the Commonwealth Contracting Suite Plus (CCS Plus) is now available for public consultation. 

CCS Plus has been developed with considerable input from stakeholders and takes account of all of the comments Finance has received about the Commonwealth Contracting Suite (CCS) since its introduction in 2014.
