Procurement within Parks Victoria adheres to the Victorian Government Purchasing Board policies established under the Financial Management Act 1994 and the Ministerial Directions and Instructions for Public Construction Procurement.
Supplier Code of Conduct
What the Victorian Government expects from suppliers
The Victorian State Government (the State) is committed to ethical, sustainable and socially responsible procurement. In ensuring that our suppliers maintain the same values as the Government, the State has established a Supplier Code of Conduct (the Code).
The Fair Jobs Code
What suppliers need to know about the Fair Jobs Code
The Victorian Government has introduced The Fair Jobs Code to promote secure employment and fair labour standards and to ensure compliance with employment, workplace and industrial laws.
All suppliers interested in tendering for Fair Jobs Code applicable procurement activities and businesses seeking significant business expansion grants must hold a Fair Jobs Code Pre-Assessment Certificate.
The Fair Jobs Code is applicable –
- To all procurement activities, including goods, services and public construction, where the contract value is equal to or greater than $3 million (GST exclusive)
- When subcontractors deliver work worth $10 million or more (GST exclusive) on procurements of $20 million or greater (GST exclusive)
- To grants of $500,000 with commitments to deliver jobs (“significant business expansion grants”)
Suppliers can apply for a Pre-Assessment Certificate via the Fair Jobs Code Pre-Assessment Certificate Portal. Suppliers will need to register as a member to use the portal. Further information about the Fair Jobs code, and the requirements of whether to prepare a Fair Jobs Code plan as part of the tender process can also be located on this portal.
