In line with the Government’s commitment to realise savings, effective from Tuesday 11 October 2011 the NSW Government will cease press advertising of government tenders, including composite, display and lineage advertisements.

A small advertisement directing potential tenderers to https://tenders.nsw.gov.au will replace the current NSW Government tenders composite. Potential tenderers will be encouraged to self-register a profile on https://tenders.nsw.gov.au. When future procurement opportunities that match their profile are published, they will receive a free email notification of the tender.

To advertise tenders on https://tenders.nsw.gov.au agencies use the NSW eTendering solution managed by the Department of Finance and Services. There is a no-cost option and a fee-applicable option available to agencies.

For any questions regarding NSW eTendering, agencies should contact the Department of Finance and Services:

This policy applies to all Requests for Tender (RFT), Requests for Quote (RFQ), Requests for Information (RFI) and Expressions of Interest (EOI) and other notices relating to NSW Government procurement opportunities.

The NSW Government Advertising Guidelines have been updated to reflect these changes. The updated Advertising Guidelines are available at the Department of Premier and Cabinet’s Strategic Communications & Government Advertising website.
