The Victorian Government Purchasing Board (VGPB) sets the supply policies that govern procurement of non-construction goods and services across all Victorian Government departments and specified entities subject to the Standing Directions 2018 under the Financial Management Act (FMA).
Effective procurement saves time and money, reduces risk and supports a well-functioning government and a thriving Victorian community.
Our vision is to provide leadership in government procurement of goods and services to deliver value-for-money outcomes for Victoria.
This annual report summarises the work carried out to meet our legislative obligations and achieve our vision over the past financial year from 1 July 2021 to 30 June 2022.
This report is required under section 54M of the FMA.
Reporting on compliance
A key function of the VGPB under the FMA is to monitor compliance with supply policies. In line with this function, this report includes information on procurement compliance and performance of the departments and accredited agencies mandated to comply with VGPB policies under the FMA.
As of 1 July 2021, an additional 125 agencies have transitioned to the VGPB’s policy framework. Annual reporting on these agencies will begin next year in the VGPB Annual Report 2022–23. Refer to Changes to compliance reporting in the Compliance section for more information.
