Board directions are issued by the NSW Procurement Board

The NSW Procurement Board has the statutory power to issue Board Directions to agencies on procuring goods and services, including construction services. This authority comes from section 175 of the Public works and Procurement Act 1912.

Board Directions may apply to your agency specifically or to agencies generally. You must follow them wherever they’re relevant, as they have the standing of law.

We publish Board Directions before their start date wherever we can, to help you plan for your upcoming procurements.
