Procurement

Welcome to the Museums Victoria Procurement web page.

Background

As a State Government Entity, Museums Victoria is subject to and operates within the required procurement framework set by the Victorian Government Procurement Board (VGPB). Museums Victoria aims to meet all requirements of the VGPB regarding probity and operate transparently in all required procurement activities.

As part of this process, Museums Victoria has established this webpage to provide information and address any issues or concerns being felt by our suppliers and those looking to submit offers to Museums Victoria.

Forward Procurement Plan

To increase transparency and help businesses identify and plan for our future needs, Museums Victoria will issue a Forward Procurement Plan. This Plan will list our anticipated major purchases over the next 12-24 months. The Plan is a guide only. Companies should register with the TendersVic website to ensure that they get advice on any upcoming tenders. All planned procurement activities are subject to revision or cancellation. The information in the forward procurement plan is provided for information purposes only. It does not represent a solicitation or invitation to supply or a commitment by the department to purchase. The Plan will be updated annually as a minimum.

The 2022-2024 Forward procurement Plan is currently under development and is anticipated to be issued by July 2022.

Advertising

All expressions of interest and open tenders raised by Museums Victoria will be advertised on the TendersVic website.

Complaints Management

To help ensure that our procurement process is as fair and transparent as possible Museums Victoria has developed and published our Complaints Management Procedure. This procedure is designed to meet State Government requirements and ensure a good relationship with the business community.
