The plan lists expected contract opportunities for the next 12 months. It aims to increase industry's advance knowledge of IP Australia's requirements.
The Senate Order requires each Non-Corporate Commonwealth Entity to develop an internet listing twice a year that identifies contracts entered into during the preceding calendar or financial year, valued at or above $100,000 (GST inclusive), along with details relating to each of those contracts.
Commencing with the 2014-15 financial year, IP Australia’s Senate Order listing is available through the Senate Order link located on the AusTender Homepage (www.tenders.gov.au) .
