Whole of Australian Government Procurement

Whole of Australian Government (WoAG) Arrangements are arrangements set up for Commonwealth entities to use when procuring certain types of goods or services. These are either coordinated or cooperative procurements, and generally result in contracts or standing offer (panel) arrangements.

Coordinated arrangements are mandatory for most Commonwealth entities to use. A list of mandatory coordinated arrangements that currently exist is below.

If you have questions about a particular arrangement, you should direct your questions to the contact listed in the Standing Offer Notice (SON) on AusTender or detailed in the links below.

Cooperative Arrangements

Cooperative arrangements are optional for use, and occur where multiple entities agree to purchase similar goods or services cooperatively. These generally result in standing offer (panel) arrangements.

Search functionality on AusTender can help you identify existing cooperative arrangements – use the ‘multi-agency access’ search functionality.

If you have questions about a particular arrangement, you should direct your questions to the contact listed in the Standing Offer Notice (SON) on AusTender.

How to be a part of these arrangements

Generally speaking, when the Government is establishing a coordinated or cooperative arrangement, these opportunities will be advertised on AusTender as an approach to market. Additionally, where opportunities arise to bid to be added to existing arrangements, these will also be advertised on AusTender. These arrangements are established at a point in time for a specified period of time.

When a coordinated or cooperative arrangement already exists for the goods or services your business provides, there may be opportunities to join the arrangement. To understand when this is possible, you should contact the manager of the arrangement for more information. Alternatively, there may be opportunities to supply to the Government through the supply chain of businesses who are part of the arrangement. You could reach out to suppliers on the arrangements to see if this is possible.

If you have registered as a user on AusTender, AusTender will automatically match business opportunities with the areas of interest specified in the profile of your business when you registered. You can then receive free automatic email notifications of the latest opportunities as they are advertised. You can register for AusTender online and registration is free. Make sure to include a wide range of relevant key words in your registration profile so the system can send you email alerts containing links to approaches to market that may be suitable for your business.
