Contractor Central Improving Labour Hire



ACT Government recently launched Contractor Central to improve its transparency, consistency and compliance in managing the Territory’s labour hire workforce. Contractor Central is underpinned by the NSW Contingent Workforce Scheme, SCM0007.

To strengthen our engagement with the Recruitment Industry, ACT Government will provide information on its labour hire spend across the SCM0007 categories and Government business areas since launching Contractor Central. If your business is prequalified under SCM0007, or intends to supply labour hire to ACT Government, this information may help to increase your opportunities to supply labour hire to ACT Government Directorates.

The Contractor Central Supplier Forum will be held:

Date/Time: Friday, 8 December – 10:00 to 11:00am (arrive by 9:50am)
Venue: Nature Conservation House, Cnr Emu Bank and Benjamin Way, Belconnen ACT 2617

If your business will be represented, please RSVP by Tuesday, 5 December 2017 to the Contractor Central Support Team on (02) 8651 1949. Please include any questions you would like to clarify about Contractor Central, so we can address these in the Forum.

Contractor Central Improving Labour Hire

The ACT Government has partnered with Comensura to implement an exciting business management solution, Contractor Central, to simplify the management of our contingent workforce.

This initiative extends ACT’s access to the established NSW Contingent Workforce Scheme, SCM0007. Please visit the NSW Procurepoint website for the terms and conditions for participating in the Scheme, including supplier fees.

Contractor Central is a centralised system that will enable your business to easily engage with ACT Government through an online process, regardless of the Directorate you supply contingent workers to. This will reduce red tape and increase transparency, streamlining the process of sourcing and managing staff.

Contractor Central went live across all ACT Government Directorates in August 2017.

To increase your business’ opportunity to provide contracted workers across ACT Government, you are encouraged to pre-qualify under SCM0007, or update your pre-qualification details to supply to job categories in the ACT.

To start this process, please register on NSW eTendering website as soon as possible. For assistance on the pre-qualification process, please contact the NSWBuy team on or 1800 679 289.

If you have any queries in relation to this initiative, please contact the Contractor Central Support Team on (02) 8651 1949 or
