New tender system for getting work from the ACT Government

Share Canberra's trusted news:


THE ACT’s new electronic tendering system, “Tenders ACT” was launched today.

A spokesperson Tenders ACT will make doing business with the ACT Government easier, by providing a central point where business opportunities are advertised.

“The system offers an online forum to facilitate communication, and secure electronic lodgement of responses. There is no cost to use Tenders ACT,” the spokesperson said.

“Tenders ACT is based on a proven industry solution and will create efficiencies for government and industry by replacing manual and paper-based tendering processing with electronic processes that are streamlined, cost effective and environmentally friendly.

“It will also improve the transparency and integrity of the Territory’s procurement processes by reducing manual handling of sensitive procurement documents.

“From today, full details of all open Territory procurement opportunities will only be available via Tenders ACT and will no longer be advertised via traditional media. For the month of July 2015 advertisements will appear referring interested parties to the Tenders ACT website.

“Registration for Tenders ACT commenced on 25 June 2015 and organisations can register at any time.”

Hardcopy lodgement of tenders will be phased out progressively. Responses to tenders issued after 1 July 2015 must be lodged electronically through Tenders ACT. For more information contact the Tenders ACT Team at (02) 6207 7377 or via email at
