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.
