 Tenders and contracts

The Attorney-General's Department publishes open approach to market tenders on AusTender. An Annual Procurement Plan (APP) is published on AusTender to provide potential suppliers with an indication of likely procurements in the coming financial year.

All contracts entered into for $10,000 or above, whether as a result of an open approach to market tender or other procurement method, are listed on AusTender.

Our department utilises the Department of Finance's Commonwealth Contracting Suite (CCS) of standard documents for most procurements up to $200,000. This includes the Approach to Market (ATM), Response to ATM, Commonwealth Contract and the Commonwealth Purchase Order Terms. Procurements over $200,000 utilise agreements customised to the specific procurement.

Our department requires that correctly rendered invoices be sent for payment to invoices@ag.gov.au (in PDF format 8 or above) or posted to: GPO Box 1245, TUGGERANONG BC ACT 2901.

The department prefers to receive invoices electronically.

A correctly rendered invoice must include the following information:

  • title of the services and details of the work performed
  • name of the department's representative
  • contract number
  • supplier's ABN, and if applicable, ACN,
  • supplier's bank account details (if these have not previously been advised to the department)
  • if no separate GST invoice is to be provided, such other information as is necessary to comply with the GST Act
  • a purchase order number must be quoted where the purchase is for $10,000 or above. An invoice should only relate to a single purchase order
  • for an invoice not relating to a purchase order, the invoice must state the email address of the AGD contact officer.
