Project Snapshot


To conduct a ‘broad ranging review of the State Governments procurement practices to ensure that probity and value for money remain at the forefront of the State’s procurement policy” (as per election commitment). This included a review of the Procurement Transformation Division within the Department of Housing and Public Works.

As part of the Government’s election commitment, the IDC review provided the opportunity to undertake a review of procurement with a focus on:



The approach and timeframe that should be adopted regarding designing and implementing material changes to Queensland Government procurement functions and practices; and


Further opportunities for innovation in procurement approaches, including the opportunities for collaboration, the need for a Government Technology Blueprint and to look for opportunities to use procurement to advance broader social and economic objectives of Government.
