The Victorian Government uses centralised government contracts to buy common goods and services. These are called State Purchase Contracts (SPCs).
These whole-of-government contracts aim to:
- achieve value for money through using the collective purchasing power of government
- standardise how government buys from suppliers
Contracts can be with a sole supplier, or a panel of multiple suppliers you can choose from.
A closed contract means no new suppliers can apply to become a supplier for the contract.
An open contract means new suppliers can apply to become part of the panel when it’s advertised.
