What you need to know
  1. If you're new to procurement, we recommend you follow our best practice approach.
  2. 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.
  3. You should also make sure you know your agency's procurement accreditation status, as this will impact your ability to buy.
  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.
