Tendering for business

Access the NSW eTendering site for current opportunities and further information on tendering for our business.

The Annual Procurement Plan (APP) contains information on planned procurements for the department. It consists of a short strategic procurement outlook, supported by details on planned procurements with an open market approach.

Suppliers will have the ability to select projects to watch and be alerted when the opportunity proceeds to market. Suppliers can view the APP here

To tender for our business, all suppliers need to register on the NSW eTendering website. If required, suppliers will also need to register on Ariba, which is the department's sourcing system.

Suppliers need to comply with the NSW Procurement Board Policy Framework and the department's Business Ethics Statement.

The performance of our contracted suppliers is assessed and managed over the life of a contract.

NSW eTendering registration

Suppliers can register via the NSW eTendering website. To enrol in the system, they must be a registered business and have an Australian business number (ABN).

Once registered, suppliers will receive notifications for relevant tenders from Government departments, including the NSW Department of Education. These notifications will be based on the preferences provided when registering.

It is recommended that suppliers read the guidelines for tendering and policy which are available on the NSW eTendering website.

Ariba registration

Suppliers who have previously participated in a sourcing event with the department and have an existing Ariba account are not required to register again.
