C15 Government contracting (Appendix 5)


All procurement processes in place within the Directorate are required to comply with the procurement legislative framework including the Government Procurement Act 2001, Government Procurement Regulation 2007 and subordinate guidelines and circulars. Confirmation of the procurement selection and management processes is authorised by the appropriate Delegate within the Directorate.

Under whole of government procurement arrangements, Shared Services Procurement continued to provide advice and support in relation to procurement and contract management issues and undertook higher value procurement activities on behalf of the Directorate.

The Directorate continued to be responsible for the management of contracts. Where obligations were not met, including responsibility to comply with employment and industrial relations conditions, the contractor was required to rectify the non-compliance immediately to avoid cancellation of the contract.

Directorate central office expenditure included the acquisition of expert advice regarding curriculum, national assessment testing and other education related matters, human resource issues and capital works activities.

Contract information for schools related mainly to cleaning and grounds maintenance. All contracts were organised through Shared Services Procurement.
