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.
Refer to the State Supply Commission policies for details about the temporary changes.
Procurement policies regulate the way that the Western Australian Government purchases from suppliers in the private and not-for-profit sectors.
Policies provide direction on the key aspects of purchasing goods and services. It is important that you are familiar with these policies and that they are appropriately included in your business practices.
