You must refer to the Defence Procurement Policy Manual (DPPM) to access full guidelines for tender advertising. The tender process follows the core purchasing principle of "value for money" as set out in the Commonwealth Procurement Rules.
AusTender is the system used to enable agencies to meet their publishing obligations under the CPRs. The CPRs require that agencies must publish all open ATMs on AusTender. It also enables agencies to monitor and review their AusTender-based procurements.
Please refer to the Austender Publishing website (internal only) for guidelines including the use of the United Nations Standard Products and Services Code (UNSPSC) as a hierarchical convention to classify all goods and services.
Note: Department of Finance and Deregulation (DOFD) are the policy owners of AusTender and have a Help Desk facility. We aim to manage any AusTender issues internally and will advise if there is a requirement to call the AusTender Help Desk.
Please refer to the following documents when entering information in to AusTender.
