Public Private Partnerships
On 29 November 2008, the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) endorsed guidelines for Public Private Partnerships (PPPs). The guidelines require a PPP to be considered for all public infrastructure projects where the total capital value exceeds $50 million. The National Public Private Partnership Policy and Guidelines are available from the Infrastructure Australia website at Infrastructure Australiaexternal link
The Territory has also developed its own guidance material for PPPs, which is available from the Treasury website, here. Updated February 2016 

Supplier Complaints Management Procedure

The ACT Government has developed a process for managing complaints from suppliers or potential suppliers (i.e. tenderers or potential tenderers) about an ACT Government procurement. The guidelines and relevant supporting documents for this process are available from the Supplier and Tenderer Complaints page.  Updated 21 December 2018

ACT Government Funding Managers' Guide 
A Funding Managers' Guide has been developed by the Funding Managers Network to help ACT Government and community sector employees understand the processes involved in managing government funded community services. Understanding the funding management process will promote effective partnerships between government and community organisations, and is important to ensure optimal outcomes for service users. Updated September 2011
