State Procurement Contracts

Suppliers can join state panels through the Buying for Victoria website.

Disclosure of Contracts

The Corangamite CMA will disclose the key details for contracts with a total estimated value equal to or exceeding $100,000 within 60 days of the award of a contract on the contract publishing system, the Buying for Victoria Tenders Portal.

Tenders

CCMA requests for tenders and expressions of interest for contracts are available from the Buying for Victoria Tenders Portal. Other state government department tenders are also advertised at this site.

 

Environmental Procurement

The Corangamite CMA is committed to minimising the environmental impact of the goods and services purchased to meet its requirements. Corangamite CMA aims to meet this commitment by:

  • Purchasing goods and services that have reduced impacts on the environment, compared with competing goods and services that achieve the same function and value for money outcomes
  • Defining environmental procurement priorities based on assessment of environmental risks and their ability to influence environmental outcomes
  • Considering environmental impact when defining specifications for goods and services
  • Assessing the potential environmental impact of entering into a commercial engagement with a supplier, where appropriate.

Social Procurement

The Corangamite CMA is committed to achieving the objectives of Victoria’s Social Procurement Framework that aims to ensure value-for-money considerations are not solely focused on price, but encompass opportunities to deliver social and sustainable outcomes that benefit the Victorian community.

The Corangamite CMA will incorporate into its procurement processes Social Procurement considerations as outlined in its Social Procurement Strategy.
