As announced by the Minister for Finance on 11 December 2020, we have extended the 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 May 2021 and allow you to streamline the procurement process with local businesses. If you are not purchasing from a local business, the original thresholds apply.
If you are buying goods and services on behalf of your agency, you must ensure that the purchase meets these policy requirements. Other procurement policies may also influence your buying.
