What we do

We set up and manage ICT procurement initiatives on behalf of the Australian Government. This means we establish marketplaces, panels and agreements to simplify the process of buying and selling digital products and services to government.

Our panels and marketplaces are groups of evaluated sellers who offer approved digital products and services that government agencies commonly use. Our whole-of-government agreements are with select sellers where the Australian Government has identified a need based on volume buying or spend.

We also manage the policies that govern how agencies buy digital products and services. These policies aim to simplify government procurement and level the playing field for industry sellers.
