The Government Procurement BoardThe Government Procurement Board was established in 2001 with the introduction of the Government Procurement Act 2001 (Act)External Link. The Act prescribes the Board's functions and responsibilities.

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.
