Purchase terms and conditions

Purchases under existing supply arrangements or contracts

The terms and conditions used by the Department of Education will depend on how the goods and/or services have been sourced. Goods purchased under an existing supply arrangement or contract established by the department or other Government department will be made under the terms and conditions of that supply arrangement or contract. If an existing supply arrangement or contract is being used, the supply arrangement or contract reference number should be quoted at the time the order is placed. For standing offer, preferred supplier and pre-qualified supplier arrangements, the applicable Government terms and conditions are used for these supply arrangements.
