The department has developed a Corporate Procurement Plan 2012 - 2016 to express the objectives of the procurement function and strategies to achieve better outcomes.
For purchases up to the value of $100,000, this activity is undertaken by purchasing officers located in schools, TAFE, regional and corporate offices. This includes purchasing from already established standing offer arrangements. The applicable departmental purchase terms and conditions are used for these supply agreements and should be referenced on any purchase order issued.
For procurements over the value of $100,000, including the establishment of standing offer and pre-qualified supplier arrangements, this activity is undertaken by procurement delegates located in the central corporate procurement and capital works areas. The procurement strategy most appropriate to the delivery of the best procurement outcome is determined based on an assessment of complexity, scope, opportunities and risk associated with procurement objectives, as well as the level of competition in the supply market. The applicable Government terms and conditions are used for these supply agreements. The department uses the e-Tender system to advertise and manage open invitations to the market.
