Third party purchasing

Clause 6 of the Public Works and Procurement Regulation 2019 allows the NSW Procurement Board to provide access to suppliers of public sector bodies to state contracts standing offer agreements for the provision of goods and services. These suppliers are known as Nominee Purchasers. The public sector bodies making the nominations are known as Nominating Agencies.

'Nominee Purchaser' means a supplier to a public sector agency, nominated by the public sector agency to be authorised to place Orders under Standing Offer Agreements for works done as such a supplier and registered by NSW Procurement.

Access of nominee purchasers to NSW Government contracts standing offer agreements:

  • is limited to standing offer agreements relevant to the contract between the nominating agency and the nominee purchaser, and which are specifically listed in the nominee purchaser’s registration and
  • is for a fixed period of registration, usually ending on the completion of the term of the contract between the nominating agency and the nominee purchaser.

A nominee purchaser must not purchase goods or services under a NSW Government contract standing offer agreement, unless they are related to its obligations under a contract with a public sector agency and are used during the term of such a contract or included or incorporated in works, goods or services to be provided to the public sector bodies.
