Why supply to Government?
Every year the State Government spends billions of dollars on building, works, goods and services for the community, which creates a wide variety of contracting opportunities for local, small and medium-sized businesses.
More than just a job opportunity, securing a government contract can help your business:
- Gain a valuable reference - Government agencies choose suppliers that can offer reliable, efficient and value for money contracting solutions. Once you have completed a government contract, you will have a Government reference of your business’s contracting ability, which may help you secure work in the private sector or overseas markets.
- Earn a reliable source of income - In most cases, State Government Agencies pay correctly prepared invoices within 30 days.
- Secure more government contracts - Once you have gained experience from supplying goods or services to one Government Agency, you have a strong selling point to secure more contracts with other Agencies and public authorities.

There are approximately 130 State Agencies that procure a diverse range of goods and services from the private sector.
