Australia’s business recovery is marked by procurement reforms across the three tiers of government. This is led by embracing “digital marketplaces,” opening opportunities for small-to-medium enterprises and ensuring the sourcing of goods and services are transparent, accountable, and commercially-savvy.

The overall accountability underscores governments’ annual spending that is capped at more than A$64 billion. On the technology front, the public sector IT spending is forecast to exceed A$13 billion this financial year, representing a substantial increase from the previous year.

Governments’ appetite for procurement innovation and delivering “bang for the buck” comes under the spotlight at the  4th Annual Australian Gov Procurement Summit . The information-packed agenda is tailored for professionals that seek to optimise procurement innovation, together with flexibility for contract negotiation, and staying agile, nimble, and open to change.
