The Queensland Government currently procures over $20 billion on goods and services each year, on anything from building and maintaining hospitals, to delivering services for our most vulnerable Queenslanders, to buying paper and school supplies. This represents approximately 30% of total government expenditure.
The Queensland Government Procurement, in collaboration with other agencies, is focused on improving procurement practice across the public sector.
In 2015, the government committed to a broad ranging review of procurement practices to ensure probity and value-for-money remain at the forefront of the State’s procurement policy.
During this review, the Queensland Government Procurement will focus on:
- building capability through the new sector-wide Skills2Procure training initiative
- continued collaboration with agencies to share learnings and enhance relationships
- efficiency and effectiveness, including maintaining procurement systems, and developing procurement-related frameworks, tools and guidance materials
- further embedding category management through prioritised initiatives and existing whole-of-government arrangements
- supporting quality data by improving the quality and visualisation of current whole-of-government procurement data.
