Hi all,

This is the third in the mythbusting series. I hope you are finding them informative.

Myth: The Department of Finance is responsible for all Commonwealth procurement

Fact: The Commonwealth operates a devolved procurement framework. Put simply, this means that each entity is responsible for undertaking its own procurement activities. 

Finance is responsible for managing the whole-of-government procurement framework this includes the Commonwealth Procurement Rules (CPRs) that are issued by the Minister for Finance under the Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Act 2013.

All non-corporate Commonwealth entities must comply with the CPRs. In addition there are twenty ‘prescribed’ corporate Commonwealth entities that also must comply.
