Current tender and future opportunities to supply goods and services to the department

The department has an annual budget to buy goods and services from a range of suppliers through various ways.

It's helpful to understand key components of the procurement process if you intend to do business with the department. 

Current tender opportunities

Current and past tender opportunities are published on SA Tenders and Contracts.

You can register your details on SA Tenders and Contracts and receive notification of upcoming tender opportunities.

Future opportunities

You can find potential opportunities on Government of South Australia’s forward procurement plan.

The portal shows planned opportunities identified by the department over the next 12 months.

Preparing competitive bids

All bids for our business should be competitive but remember that value for money is more than just price. It includes factors like quality, timeliness and experience providing the goods or services.

Review any advertised weightings to ensure your bid meets our needs. Non-compliant or incomplete submissions will not be considered.
