Importance of government procurement to the NSW economy
In 2018-19, NSW Government agencies spent around $34 billion on goods, services and construction. That means over the past 5 years, our spend has increased an average of $2.7 billion a year.
On top of this, the NSW Government has committed $87.2 billion over the next 4 years towards building critical infrastructure.
Our duty is to make sure this money is spent fairly and efficiently, and for the long-term benefit of everyone in NSW.
We believe government spending can help build a vibrant and sustainable NSW economy, promote innovation, deliver jobs where they are most needed and encourage economic participation.
Consistent with this, there are 5 key objectives which must guide every procurement decision you make.
