Senate Order listing on contracts $100,000 or more
On 20 June 2001, the Senate agreed to an Order requiring each Minister to table a letter advising that a list of entity contracts has been placed on the internet, with access to the list through the agency’s website.
All Austrade’s procurement contracts can be found through the Senate Order button on AusTender. The contracts listed in the AusTender reporting contain confidentiality provisions of a general nature designed to protect the confidential information of the parties that may be obtained or generated in carrying out the contract.
The reasons for including such clauses include:
- Ordinary commercial prudence that requires protection of trade secrets, proprietary information and the like; and/or
- protection of other Commonwealth material and personal information.
The accountable authority of Austrade has assured that, based on the information available as a result of reasonable enquiries undertaken by officers in the agency, the listed contracts do not contain any inappropriate confidentiality provisions.
All government entities must report on the grants they administer.
