What value contracts will I see publicised in the Gazette?
A. Gazettal of certain contracts is a requirement under the Procurement Act. The rules relating to Gazettal of Contracts awarded are:a. Contracts awarded for Tier Three, Four or Five supplies (ie. those in excess of $10 000) are required to be Gazetted except where otherwise approved by the Procurement Minister. b. Contracts awarded are not to be published in the Gazette where: – the Supplies are provided by the Government, the Commonwealth or a State or another Territory of the Commonwealth; – the Supplies are obtained under an existing Period Contract; or – publication of the details is, in the opinion of the Procurement Minister, contrary to public interest.Further information is available by reading Procurement Direction PO9 (Contract Award and Gazettal).
