The ABS conducts its contracting and related administrative arrangements in accordance with the Commonwealth Procurement Guidelines, whilst undertaking regular reviews to ensure that staff have both access to, and are kept informed of, these guidelines. The ABS has revised its procurement policy in accordance with the Commonwealth Procurement Guidelines and has developed comprehensive operating procedures and guidelines which have been released as the Procurement Toolkit. Through observance of these policies and principles, the ABS is confident that its approach to competitive tendering and contracting has proven to be highly effective with the processes contributing to value for money procurement outcomes for the ABS. The ABS has invested considerable resources into the training and development of its key procurement staff.
