Purchasing and procurement

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

  • all relevant Commonwealth legislation
  • the Australian Government financial framework, including the Commonwealth Procurement Rules
  • the Chief Executive Instructions and relevant Clean Energy Regulator policies.

Officers of the Clean Energy Regulator may seek advice from the Operations Division on procedural compliance, adherence to the Chief Executive Instructions, government policies or the tendering process. Procurement policies, procedures, processes and templates are available 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. All procurements of $50,000 and above (inclusive of GST) and those of $10,000 and above (inclusive of GST) that are undertaken using a limited tender procurement method are considered by the Procurement Team, Operations Division, 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 updated quarterly and 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 Clean Energy Regulator.

Exempt contracts

In 2013–14, 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, www.tenders.gov.au.

Australian National Audit Office access clauses

During 2013–14, all contracts of $100,000 (inclusive of GST) or more included a provision for the Auditor-General to have access to the contractor's premises.
