Future procurement opportunities

Find future opportunities to do business with government. Check annual procurement plans for buying goods and services or browse advanced tender notices for public construction.

Government organisations must plan what they want to buy up front, and let the market know their plans. This means more Victorian businesses can get involved in supplying to government.

Future plans for public construction

Forward notices provide continually updated information on the forward pipeline of government construction projects.

From 1 July 2018, Government buyers must publish a forward notice of future opportunities for:

  • works opportunities valued over $500,000
  • services opportunities valued over $200,000

You can find forward notices under ‘Advance Tender Notices’ on the Buying for Victoria portal.

The forward notice shows what type of procurement process will be used for that opportunity.

It also lists any specific capabilities you may need, like holding certifications or prequalification under a panel or register. This means you’ll have time to arrange to update your capabilities if you need to.

You can choose the tender categories you’re interested in and subscribe to get new notices.

Future plans for goods and services

Government organisations must publish a procurement activity plan each year. This has details of what they intend to buy during the year.
