Victorian Government Purchasing Board
Achieving Excellence in Government Procurement

Building a fair, inclusive and sustainable Victoria through procurement

The Victorian Government is committed to social procurement. It recognises the ability of government procurement to make a difference to the lives of all Victorians.

To support this commitment, the Government has established Victoria’s Social Procurement Framework (SPF). By leveraging its significant buying power, the SPF enables buyers and suppliers to deliver social, economic and environmental outcomes that benefit the Victorian community.

To successfully implement the SPF, the Government is working to create supporting guidance material. The guidance material will help government buyers and suppliers apply the SPF through tools, templates and supplier directories.

What the Victorian Government expects from suppliers

Suppliers are encouraged to read the SPF and Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) to gain an understanding of how Government procurement is shifting to incorporate social and sustainable outcomes into everyday buying activity.
