Existing government contracts

The government has set up contracts for frequently purchased goods and services to obtain better value for money. These contracts are set up by public tendering. The tender arrangement can be by sole or panel supplier. 

State Purchase Contracts (SPC)

State Purchase Contracts (SPCs) may apply across a number of departments and agencies. The Victorian Government manages more than 100,000 SPCs across a range of goods and services. These include contracts for office supplies, marketing and media services, IT and communications, print management, financial and banking services, and energy performance.

Procurement Victoria website has the complete list of Victorian Government SPCs.

Sole Entity Purchase Contracts (SEPC's)

Sole Entity Purchase Contracts (SEPCs) work the same way as an SPC, but are offered by an individual department or agency.

The Tenders VIC website has details of all departmental contracts.
