Procurement Strategy

The purchasing and procurement practices of the Goulburn Broken CMA are important as they:

  • Support sound financial management;
  • Ensure trust in government;
  • Ensure that resources are sourced efficiently and effectively;
  • Support the Goulburn Broken CMA to deliver on its vision;
  • Support the creation of a  thriving community by ensuring the Goulburn Broken CMA considers local, environmental, and social factors in its procurement.

Goulburn Broken CMA’s procurement strategy is revised every three years, with the next planned revision in September 2024.

Guide for Suppliers

Suppliers must ensure that they and their employees, workers, representatives, suppliers, and subcontractors comply with the standards of conduct set out in the guides and in other contractual obligations to the CMA.

Suppliers when entering an arrangement with the Goulburn Broken CMA will be provided a copy of the general conditions for the provision of services and supply of goods. See the documents here:

State Procurement Contracts

The Goulburn Broken CMA is in the process of arranging for procurement using state procurement contracts.

Welcome to Buying for Victoria (tenders.vic.gov.au)

Tenders

Goulburn Broken CMA requests for tenders and expressions of interest for contracts are available from the  Buying for Victoria Tenders Portal. Other state government department tenders are also advertised at this site.

Environmental Procurement

The Goulburn Broken CMA is committed to minimising the environmental impact of the goods and services purchased to meet its requirements. The Goulburn Broken CMA aims to meet this commitment by:

  • Purchasing goods and services that have reduced impacts on the environment, compared with competing goods and services that achieve the same function and value for money outcomes;
  • Defining environmental procurement priorities based on assessment of environmental risks and their ability to influence environmental outcomes;
  • Considering environmental impact when defining specifications for goods and services;
  • Assessing the potential environmental impact of entering into a commercial engagement with a supplier, where appropriate.

Social Procurement

The Goulburn Broken CMA is committed to achieving the objectives of Victoria’s Social Procurement Framework that aims to ensure value-for-money considerations are not solely focused on price, but encompass opportunities to deliver social and sustainable outcomes that benefit the Victorian community.

Procurement Complaints
