As announced by the Minister for Finance on 27 May 2020, we have implemented temporary changes to the procurement thresholds to maximise contracting opportunities for local businesses and support economic recovery following the COVID-19 pandemic.
The raised thresholds are available until 31 December 2020 and allow you to streamline the procurement process with local businesses. If you are not purchasing from a local business, the original thresholds apply.
Use the following guidelines in conjunction with the buying goods or services guide.
These documents apply to purchasing goods and services only. Guidance is also available for buying community services.

These guidelines contain detailed information about procurement practice issues that you may need assistance with when purchasing goods and services. A quick overview of goods and service procurement is located in the mini guide.
