Key benefits

Benefits for buyers

The scheme provides simple access for government agencies, delivering significant time and cost savings in procuring fit-for-purpose valuation services and a streamlined quoting process.

Benefits for suppliers

  • An online application removes lengthy and expensive tender processes.
  • Suppliers can be added regularly, giving agencies continual access to new suppliers.

Streamlined categories enable suppliers to align their offerings and increase their chances to provide services to government, making it easier for more valuers, including regional, small to medium enterprises (SMEs) to prequalify to tender for government work.

Insurance

Service providers are required to maintain policies of insurance for Public Liability and Workers' Compensation where required by law.

Professional Indemnity Insurance may be required for some engagements.

The level of insurance coverage that is required will be provided in the category standard specifications scheme documents or as determined by the Engaging Agencies at the time the Service Provider is engaged.
