What you need to know
  1. There are certain things you must be aware of before you buy, such as the NSW Government’s procurement objectives. You must keep these in mind every time you procure.
  2. You should also make sure you know your accreditation status as this will impact on your ability to buy.
  3. To encourage innovation and get the best outcomes, you should be engaging with industry even when you’re not actively procuring.
  4. Construction industry procurements work a little differently to others and it’s important you know some of the key differences.
  5. There are other factors you should also keep in mind before you procure, including understanding whether your procurement is a ‘covered procurement’ and, if so, which extra rules apply.
