The government has launched a new website, AusTender, which is designed to assist local businesses in accessing the latest information on Australian Government tenders.
AusTender (www.tenders.gov.au) is a secure website that enables government agencies to advertise business opportunities online and make tender documentation available for download. It allows suppliers to submit tender responses electronically.
Businesses can also elect to receive automatic notification of business opportunities of particular interest to them. Registered suppliers will be notified via email when business opportunities that match their selected profile are published.
AusTender has been partially funded by the government’s Small Business Assistance Package announced in 2001.
