Future procurement opportunities

Find 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 and let the market know their plans. This means more Victorian businesses can get involved in supplying to government.

Forward notices for public construction

Forward notices provide information on upcoming procurement opportunities.

Government buyers publish a forward notice for:

  • works opportunities valued over $500,000 (inclusive of GST)
  • construction services opportunities valued over $200,000 (inclusive of GST).

The forward notice shows:

  • a brief description of the procurement
  • type of procurement process
  • indicative program
  • capabilities that apply, like holding a certification or holding prequalification under a register
  • policies that affect the procurement.

Find forward notices under ‘Advance Tender Notices’ on the Buying for Victoria portalExternal Link .

The portal allows you subscribe to tender categories and receive alerts for advanced tender notices.

Information shown in a forward notice is subject to change or cancellation. The information included in a forward notice is for planning purposes only. It does not represent a pre-solicitation or an invitation for bids. It is not a commitment to buy the works or construction services described in the notice.

Procurement activity plans for goods and services

Departments and agencies publish a procurement activity plan each year. The plan has details of what the departments and agencies intend to buy during the year.
