About the VGPB
The Victorian Government Purchasing Board sets the policies that govern procurement of non-construction goods and services across all Victorian government department and some specified entities.
To provide leadership in government procurement of goods and services to deliver value-for-money outcomes for Victoria.
To ensure government:
- develops procurement capability
- delivers value-for-money and fit-for-purpose outcomes
- minimises risk
- enables access to procurement opportunities for all businesses
The VGPB has a to support a more strategic and efficient approach for the procurement of goods and services. Under these policies, procuring goods and services now has an emphasis on complexity and risk with each procurement requiring forward planning.
When purchasing goods or services, buyers must comply with the relevant procurement policies of their lead organisation. This may include applicable broader government policies and Australian Standards where relevant, including but not limited to any supplier charters or codes of conduct.
Government buyers are encouraged to contact their procurement-governance unit before commencing procurement.
