Procurement

Suppliers and contractors interested in providing goods and services to the Victorian Government can register their interest via:

  • Industry Capability Network (ICN)
  • Buying for Victoria

To stay up to date about our projects, please subscribe to our eNews and follow our social channels.

Industry Capability Network (ICN)

Suppliers and contractors interested in providing goods and services to health capital infrastructure projects can register their interest on the Industry Capability Network (ICN) website.

The Industry Capability Network (ICN) is an independent organisation financially supported by Australian and New Zealand state and territory governments. It provides a valuable tool for buyers, project managers and government to identify local industry capability and match businesses and contractors to relevant opportunities and projects.

ICN assists Victorian industries grow and diversify, promoting employment, skill retention and economic growth across the state.

Buying for Victoria

Buying for Victoria (formerly Tenders.vic) enables all suppliers to register their interest in supplying to the Victorian Government. This website is the first step to providing Victorian suppliers and buyers with a single location to access procurement information. Buying for Victoria also provides information about the Victorian Government’s Social Procurement Framework, a program that aims to harness the state’s buying power to create social benefits for Victorian communities.

Expressions of interest and tenders for health capital infrastructure projects are advertised on the Buying for Victoria website (formerly Tenders VIC), along with procurement information and tools for organisations working with us, and other government organisations.

Social procurement

The Victorian Health and Human Services Building Authority is committed to social procurement and making a positive difference to the lives of all Victorians.

We encourage organisations to use their buying power to generate social value above and beyond the value of the goods, services, or construction being procured, and preference suppliers who can:

  • demonstrate value-for-money considerations that are not solely focused on price
  • incorporate a balanced judgement on a range of financial and non-financial factors, such as enabling more jobs and training opportunities
  • enable other social and sustainable outcomes.

Victoria’s Social Procurement Framework (SPF) is a whole-of-Government approach to generate social value above and beyond the value of the goods, services or construction procured.

This framework assists government departments, agencies and businesses demonstrate value-for-money considerations that are not solely focused on price.

Preference is given to organisations that incorporate a balanced judgement on a range of financial and non-financial factors. Factors can include enabling more jobs for people who face barriers to employment, including:

  • Aboriginal people
  • long-term job seekers
  • at-risk women
  • victims and survivors of family violence
  • people with a disability
  • young Victorians.

Organisations that demonstrate other social and sustainable outcomes are also preferred. For further information, visit https://www.buyingfor.vic.gov.au/victorias-social-procurement-framework.

We believe that all Victorians deserve to share in the benefits of our growing economy. That’s why we support the Public Tenant Employment Program (PTEP), managed by the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS).

This program aims to provide opportunities for public housing residents to gain sustainable hands on experience, training and employment, particularly in areas where there are skills shortages such as:

  • aged care
  • office administration
  • hospitality
  • gardening
  • construction
  • maintenance and security.

As well as providing vital opportunities for local communities, organisations can also benefit from recognising and improving their social responsibility. The program can assist organisations with free recruitment services to fill job vacancies, provide ongoing support for the lifetime of the partnership, as well as subsidised construction industry apprenticeships for public housing residents.
