Working with NSW Government - Procurement

Working with NSW Government

As a NSW Government agency, we are aligned with the NSW Government Procurement policy framework. Where appropriate we are keen to utilise Whole of Government (WoG) arrangements to ensure consistency and value.

Whole of Government arrangements include contracts, prequalification schemes and panels. They cover a vast array of goods and services and may include discrete contracts, panels and prequalification schemes. Some arrangements include a process to add new suppliers throughout the arrangement term.

Suppliers are encouraged to visit the NSW Government buy.nsw website to learn more about working with NSW Government and to view upcoming opportunities.


To become a NSW Government agreement supplier, you need to first register on eTendering the online tendering system used by NSW Government agencies to advertise, and often manage, procurement opportunities. As a registered supplier you can:

  • Apply to prequalification schemes
  • Add to watch list for planned procurements
  • Get timely emails about upcoming opportunities
  • Respond quickly to opportunities posted on eTendering
  • See details of awarded contracts

TAFE NSW advertises its public tenders over $250,000 on eTendering and interested suppliers must be registered with this system to download tender information.

Procurement Plans

Each financial year TAFE NSW will publish forward procurement plans that give an indication to the market of what we will be tendering for in the coming year.

Whilst this information is subject to change, it can be helpful to know what is on the pipeline.
