Senate Order on Government Contracts

On 20 June 2001, the Senate agreed to an order requiring each Minister to table a letter of advice that a list of contracts, in respect of each agency administered by that Minister, has been placed on the internet, with access to the list through the department’s home page. The letter must be tabled no later than the tenth day of the spring and autumn sittings each year.

From 1 July 2015, the revised Senate Order requires that only contracts formed through grants, sales of goods/services by an entity, disposals by an entity, and other financial arrangements (non-procurement contracts) be included in the internet listing. Procurement contracts are not to be included in the internet listing. Reports on procurement contracts will be generated by the Department of Finance and published on AusTender (www.tenders.gov.au) and can be accessed by the Senate Order button.

The National Competition Council is subject to the Senate Order but, as it has not entered into any non-procurement contracts, has not produced listings for the following periods:

  • Financial years: 1 June 2014 to 30 June 2015, 1 July 2015 to 30 June 2016 and 1 July 2016 to 30 June 2017
  • Calendar years: 1 January 2015 to 31 December 2015 and 1 January 2016 to 31 December 2016.
