Each Government department has an Accredited Purchasing Unit (APU) which is responsible for:
assessing procurement proposals in excess of $100,000 and high risk/complex purchases of lesser value;
approving proposals within the department's accreditation limit and endorsing proposals outside that accreditation limit for consideration by the VGPB;
monitoring and reporting on the department's purchasing processes and procedures;
providing purchasing related advice to senior officers and other personnel;
facilitating increasing levels of competency in the procurement function.
Victorian government staff members who need to purchase a good or service as part of their job should follow their departmental procedures.
The following table provides links to Departmental Intranets which can only be accessed by staff within those departments.
