Changes to Treasurer's Instructions- electronic lodgement of procurement submissions
With effect from 13 November 2017 agencies will be required to provide suppliers with at least one electronic option for the lodging of their procurement submissions.
The method of electronic lodgement used is a matter for each agency to decide, ensuring all requirements in relation to handling and confidentiality can be met. Electronic options may include, for example, the use of the Tenders website electronic lodgement functionality or a secure email or facsimile facility.
To facilitate the above changes, amendments have been made to Treasurer's Instructions 1106, 1107, 1109, 1206, 1207 and 1209 available on Treasury's website at www.treasury.tas.gov.au.
Changes are being made to the Crown Solicitor's pro forma procurement documentation.
