Black Economy Procurement Connected Policy – Increasing the integrity of government procurement


This Procurement connected policy outlines the key components of the Commonwealth Government's policy to increase the integrity of government procurement, as recommended in the Black Economy Taskforce's final report.

From 1 July 2019, businesses seeking to tender for Australian Government procurement contracts over $4 million (including GST) are required provide a statement from the Australian Taxation Office showing they have a satisfactory tax record.

All non-corporate Commonwealth entities must comply with the policy.
