Goods and services procurement
The Department of Transport and Main Roads is a significant purchaser of goods and services for the Queensland Government. To manage this it operates a centre-led procurement model (meaning governance, planning, reporting are determined by a centre of procurement experts and the hands-on buying is undertaken by the local areas).
The way the department purchases is guided by the Queensland Procurement Policy (2013). Suppliers can access the Queensland Procurement Policy and other useful reference information on the Queensland Government Procurement site.
Departmental procurement processes are in place to guide departmental officers through procurement activities and support the principles of the Queensland Procurement Policy. They are consistent with the government's framework, and allow Transport and Main Roads’ procurement to align with the department’s business needs. They are subject to ongoing review and amended when required.
When selecting the appropriate sourcing strategy the department considers the outcomes of risk, demand and supply market analysis. Predetermined evaluation criteria are used to select successful offers.
The department uses the Q-Tenders system (available on the Queensland Government Marketplace) to advertise and manage invitations to offer and disclose contracts awarded (over $10,000).
Transport and Main Roads use whole of government invitation to offer documentation and standard terms and conditions for the procurement of goods and services. These can also be found on the Queensland Government Procurement site.
Where appropriate, purchases can be made using the Queensland Government Corporate Purchasing Card (QGCPC). The QGCPC in Transport and Main Roads is a Mastercard®.
