Small business procurement

The Commission supports small businesses’ participation in the Australian Government procurement market. Participation statistics for small and medium enterprises and small enterprises for 2018–19 are available on the Department of Finance website, at www.finance.gov.au.

The Commission adopted two specific practices to support procurement from small and medium enterprises:

  • use of the Commonwealth Contracting Suite for low–risk procurements valued under $200,000; and
  • use of payment cards for purchases up to $10,000 to facilitate on–time payment.
