How to buy

Updated: 27 Apr 2020

Print catalogues

The supplier may be able to provide hard copy catalogues of the products available for supply under the contract.  These are free of charge to customers on a reasonable request basis.

The information in the catalogues will be regularly updated by the supplier through newsletters and other bulletins to ensure that customers are kept up to date on changes to the range of products available.

Pricing

Contact supplier for pricing. Prices may change in accordance with the price variation conditions of the contract if there are any.

Regular users of state contracts should consider using eCatalogue for latest pricing if applicable.

Variations

The following price variation conditions apply:

  • The contractor may only seek to vary the price of a service listed in schedule 3 in accordance with the frequencies and methodology indicated in schedule 3. Subject to the contractor having provided the NSW Procurment Board with sufficient documentation to justify the application, and subject to clause 13.1.2(a), the Board may in writing, approve the application within 30 days of lodgement.
  • Price variations approved by the Board shall apply to all customer contracts made on or after the date upon which the Board publishes the varied price on NSWBuy eCatalogues.
  • Where the price variation is accepted, schedule 3 will include the varied price.  The varied price becomes the basis from which any future applications for price variations will be calculated.

The Board reserves the right to delete a service from schedule 3 if it considers a price variation application to be unreasonable.

Notwithstanding any other provision in this agreement, the contractor may apply in writing to the Board to decrease its prices at any time without any supporting documentation.
