Small business

ASD supports small business participation in the Australian Government procurement market. Small and medium-sized enterprise participation statistics are available on the Department of Finance's website.

ASD's procurement practices to support small and medium-sized enterprises include:

  • adoption of standing offers such as the Digital Marketplace, which provides access to a large number of small and medium enterprises
  • the selection of small and medium enterprises, under ASD's standing-offer panel arrangement, for the provision of contractor personnel providing ICT capability and support roles
  • the use of the Commonwealth Contracting Suite for relevant procurements valued at less than $200,000
  • the use of electronic systems to facilitate the Department of Finance's Procurement On-Time Payment Policy for Small Business, including payment cards.
