Whole of Australian Government Procurement

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

Coordinated Procurement Arrangements

Coordinated procurement arrangements are established for commonly used goods or services by the Commonwealth. These arrangements ensure more efficient processes to deliver better prices, service and quality for the Commonwealth. Coordinated procurement arrangements also offer increased transparency, standard terms and conditions and improved contract management that benefits both the government and suppliers.   

Where established, coordinated procurement arrangements are mandatory for non-corporate Commonwealth entities, as defined in section 8 of the Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Act 2013 (PGPA Act)

Whether other entities can opt-in is dependent on each specific arrangement.

A list of mandatory coordinated arrangements is below, including detail on where each arrangement may be applicable to other entities.

NCE = non-corporate Commonwealth entity; CCE = corporate Commonwealth entity; GBE = Government Business Enterprise.

Please note: this page’s content is targeted towards Commonwealth entities. Suppliers are encouraged to visit this page for information on how to join an existing arrangement.
