Government—procurement policy(Question No 90)

Mr Davis asked the Special Minister of State, upon notice, on 12 February 2021:

Are there procurement targets for the Charter of Procurement Values; if so, what mechanisms enforce those targets.

Mr Steel: The answer to the member’s question is as follows:

1. The Charter of Procurement Values outlines the key values the ACT Government seeks to embed in its procurement practices.

2. Territory entities are required to report which Procurement Values were, or will be, achieved as a result of entering into a notifiable contract. Data will be used internally to inform decision making, business support requirements and to monitor compliance with the Government Procurement (Charter of Procurement Values) Direction 2020.

3. The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Procurement Policy that aligns with the Charter of Procurement Values has its own measures, target and reporting requirements. Territory Entities are required to comply with monitoring and reporting requirements to ensure that they are capturing the required data.

4. Further policies aligning with the values are in development which may include targets where relevant.
