Purchasing and procurement

 

The Clean Energy Regulator’s purchasing and procurement policies and practices are consistent with:

  • all relevant legislation
  • the Australian Government financial framework, including the Commonwealth Procurement Guidelines and the Commonwealth Procurement Rules (which will replace the guidelines from 1 July 2012)
  • the Chief Executive Instructions and relevant agency policies.

The Clean Energy Regulator is reviewing and updating its procurement processes to improve their effectiveness and usability.

Staff of the Clean Energy Regulator may seek advice from the Corporate Services Division on procedural compliance, adherence to the Chief Executive Instructions, government policies and the tendering process. Staff also have access to the procurement policies, procedures and templates through the Clean Energy Regulator’s intranet.

All open tender opportunities of $80 000 and above (inclusive of GST) are advertised on the AusTender website, www.tenders.gov.au. All procurements of $50 000 and above (inclusive of GST) and those above $10 000 that are undertaken with sole suppliers are considered by the Procurement Review Committee to ensure that they are conducted in accordance with the procurement framework. The procurement methods aim not to discriminate against small and medium-sized enterprises.

The Clean Energy Regulator’s Annual Procurement Plan is available on the AusTender website. The plan outlines the planned procurement for the forthcoming year, giving prospective suppliers the opportunity to prepare for potential work with the Agency.

Exempt contracts

In 2011–12, the Chief Executive Officer did not exempt any standing offer or contract in excess of $10 000 (inclusive of GST) from being published on the AusTender website on the basis that it would disclose exempt matters under the Freedom of Information Act 1982.

Australian National Audit Office access clause

During 2011–12, no contracts of $100 000 or more which did not provide for the Auditor-General to have access to the contractor’s premises were let by the Clean Energy Regulator.
