About procurement

An overview of each Victorian Government organisation and their role in procurement.

Procurement in Victoria

The Victorian Government is made up of many departments and agencies. These organisations buy a wide range of goods, works and services so they can deliver quality public services that meet the needs of our growing Victorian community. Organisations approach the market on an ongoing basis. Find opportunities

Organisations need to comply with procurement laws and policies when they buy goods, works or services. Many of the laws and policies that apply for goods and services are different from those that apply for construction works and services. Some laws and policies apply to all procurement. The Department of Treasury and Finance, Victorian Government Purchasing Board, and Health Purchasing Victoria look after laws and policies.

Often organisations buy goods, works and services through whole of government contracts and registers. Larger one-off purchases are usually undertaken by open tender.
