Emergency notice

Existing supply arrangements

Contracts over $150,000 are recorded in the register of government contracts, which can be found on this page and the NSW eTendering website.

The Government Information (Public Access) Act 2009 requires disclosure of all contracts the department enters into with the private sector valued at more than $150,000. Details are recorded in the register of government contracts, which is published on the Department of Education section of the NSW eTendering website.

These details are to be registered within 45 working days of the contract coming into effect, and must remain on the register for 30 days or until the contract is complete, whichever is longer.

Class 3 contracts

Contracts which are larger than $5m can be Class 3 contracts with an increased level of disclosure.

The Government Information (Public Access) Act 2009 (GIPA) requires the publication of a copy of the contract document (minus commercial-in-confidence content) for all Class 3 contracts on the department's website, as below.

Class 3 definition

  • there has not been a tender process, the proposed contract has not been made publicly available and the terms and conditions of the contract have been negotiated directly with the contractor, or
  • the proposed contract (whether or not made publicly available) has been the subject of a tendering process and the terms and conditions of the contract have been substantially negotiated with the successful tenderer, or
  • the obligations of one or more parties under the contract to maintain or operate infrastructure or assets could continue for 10 years or more, or
  • the contract involves a privately financed project as defined by guidelines published by the Treasury (as in force from time to time), or
  • the contract involves a transfer of a significant asset of the agency concerned to another party to the contract in exchange for the transfer of an asset to the agency.
