Forward procurement plan

Overview

A forecast Procurement Activity plan prepared in response to the Victorian Government Purchasing Board’s new Governance Policy developed under a new procurement framework.


This forecast Procurement Activity plan is prepared in response to the Victorian Government Purchasing Board’s new Governance Policy developed under their new procurement framework. Under this policy Departments are required to publish a high-level summary plan of forecast procurement activities to be conducted by the Department over the next 12 to 18 month period.

The new framework does not require any changes on the part of suppliers to government. However, there are a number of benefits for businesses in Victoria with early advice in relation to upcoming opportunities. The focus on upfront strategic planning will provide a more consistent market approach and give suppliers visibility of upcoming procurement opportunities. The following tables show the opportunities of the next 12 to 24 months.
