The Government Procurement Board
The Government Procurement Board was established in 2001 with the introduction of the Government Procurement Act 2001 (Act). The Act prescribes the Board's functions and responsibilities. The Government Procurement Regulation 2007 (Regulation) sets criteria, including thresholds, for procurement proposals that are to be referred to the Board.
Procurement, as defined by the Act, is the process of acquiring goods, services, works or property by purchase, lease, rental or exchange, and includes the process of disposing of goods, works or property.
The Board's functions are to review and give advice to ACT Government entities, Directors General and Ministers on procurement issues and practices in the Territory, and to review procurement proposals in accordance with the Regulation.
Meetings: The Board generally meets each Tuesday to consider procurement proposals and other Board business, as required.
