New ACT Government Procurement Code
January 21, 2019
The Government Procurement (Secure Local Jobs) Amendment Bill 2018 has now passed and comes into force for all new government tenders for construction work, security, cleaning and traffic management services from 15 January 2019.
The ACT Government has now updated the Procurement website with information about the Secure Local Jobs Code and we encourage you to read the recently uploaded documents.
If you perform Commonwealth government work, you should speak with your auditor about applying for an exemption, in particular for clause 14(2) of the Secure Local Jobs Code as this is inconsistent with the Freedom of Association requirements contained in the 2016 Building Code.
