Procurement review, assurance and audit
The Gateway Review process exists to provide assurance that major government projects (the majority being ICT or construction projects) are delivered effectively. The State Tenders Review Committee and Community Services Procurement Review Committee review procurement processes valued above $5 million in the goods and services and community services streams respectively. Agencies are also required to complete a periodic audit of their procurement activities, which is reviewed by the State Supply Commission. These assurance mechanisms provide government and the community with a level of confidence that government procurement processes and projects achieve value for money and are undertaken in a fair and transparent manner.
