Get help with your agency's procurement

If you are completing a high value or high risk procurement process on behalf of your agency, we can help you.
Last updated:

For help with your strategic or complex procurement activities on major government projects, our government procurement Strategic Procurement Services (SPS) team offers procurement planning and project support activities with a focus on providing flexibility.

Depending on the complexity of the procurement, we may assign a procurement professional with extensive experience to your agency to help make the process as efficient and effective as possible.

Meeting the criteria

You must meet at least four of the seven criteria to be considered:

  • risk – the risk profile of the project is identified as high or extremely high
  • complexity – the project proposed is highly complex relative to the standard BAU procurement and may be made up of multiple procurements that impact one another
  • one off or unusual requirements – the project is an unusual business need for the agency or requiring an alternative procurement process (such as expressions of interest, requests for proposals or lower value Public Private Partnerships)
  • significance/public interest – the project is highly visible to the taxpayers, or is of high significance to the state, or politically sensitive for government
  • transformational (vs transactional) – the project will transform the agency’s business
  • timeframe – the project is extremely urgent or impacts other government initiatives
  • value – the project should have a minimum estimated contract value of $1-5 million. The total spend of your agency, agency size and internal expertise will also be considered in the context of this value
