Australian Government Tenders Published on AusTender: What You Need to Know

Author:

The Government’s centralised web-based procurement information system, AusTender provides a one-stop shop for the information businesses need to find, plan for and participate in open tenders. AusTender is in widespread and active use across industry, with 75,000 business users registered for automatic notification of business opportunities and annual procurement plans.

In June this year, the Department of Finance and Deregulation issued a circular (information brief) to Australian Government agencies under the Financial Management and Accountability Act 1997 informing them that from 1 July 2013 onwards, they can only use AusTender to advertise open approaches to market. Basically, agencies can no longer use other supplementary forms of media (such as print) to advertise a tender is being conducted.

Register on AusTender for notification of business opportunities and planned procurements that match your business profile, and to find information on panels, multi-use lists and contracts awarded.

For any additional information about non-campaign policy for advertising tenders, please contact our helpful team at advertising@finance.gov.au.
