Queensland Procurement Policy

The Queensland Government Procurement Strategy is supported by the Queensland Procurement Policy which will be applied across all government agencies and government owned corporations.

The Queensland Procurement Policy principles centre on:

  • putting Queenslanders first when securing value for money—recognising that value for money is more than price paid
  • working together to achieve outcomes—providing a flexible procurement framework based on an agency-led procurement model
  • governance and planning—focusing on a category management approach with a strong governance framework and integrated planning
  • leaders in procurement practice—professionalising the procurement discipline and building procurement capability
  • integrity, probity and accountability—ensuring procurement is undertaken with integrity, that probity is appropriately managed, and that accountability for outcomes is maintained
  • advancement of government objectives—providing the procurement framework to advance

The new policy commences on 1 September 2017, with full implementation to be completed by 1 March 2018.

A range of resources will be made available to support agencies in implementing the policy.
