Procurement and Grants

Procurement and Grants is responsible for managing the procurement, purchasing and grants functions for the department. This includes the procurement of goods and services and distribution of grants to ensure that value for money outcomes are achieved in accordance with government and department policies and guidelines.

We provide:

  • Management of department-wide contracts and supplier performance

Social responsibility

The department is embedding socially responsible practices into its procurement operations. To support this strategy, Procurement and Grants wants to hear from you if you are an organisation that has a commitment to supporting people with a disability or supporting people from an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander background. If you can demonstrate a commitment to either group, email us to be included on the register.
