This information is for Victorian Government staff who need to purchase goods or services as a part of their job.
The Victorian Government Purchasing Board (VGPB) has introduced a policy model to support a more strategic and efficient approach for the procurement of goods and services. Under these policies, procuring goods and services now has an emphasis on complexity and risk with each procurement requiring forward planning.
The VGPB policies recognise procurement as a core business function and moves away from a financial threshold to a complexity and risk based model. Transition to the new framework has taken place with all Government organisations now procuring through the framework.
When purchasing goods or services, buyers must comply with relevant procurement policies of their lead organisation. This may include applicable broader government policies and Australian Standards where relevant, including but not limited to any supplier charters or codes of conduct.
Government buyers are encouraged to contact their internal procurement unit (IPU) before commencing procurement.
