Revised NSW Government Procurement Policy Framework commences 1 July 2019
The revised framework incorporates all existing government policy and Procurement Board requirements for procurement.
The framework applies to all new government goods and services and construction procurement from 1 July 2019.
The overarching consideration for government procurement is ensuring best value for money.
All NSW government agencies, as defined in s.162 of the Public Works and Procurement Act 1912, must comply with the mandatory sections of the Framework. The Act excludes state-owned corporations, local councils and the Parliament of NSW.
The framework will be updated on a 3 monthly schedule as new policy requirements and Procurement Board Directions are issued. The next update will be released on 1 October 2019.
