Definition of open tendering in NSW

Open tendering is when an organisation makes a formal request for a detailed quote (usually in the form of an RFT—request for tender) from all providers. The request is usually for organisations to submit a proposal to them using a set format (etendering nsw is the term for managing the tendering process  entirely online in New South Wales). Open tendering is important because it gives organisations access to the large contracts offered by Australian Government organisations. Also private sector organisations may select suppliers using open tenders but not as often as governments.

The advantage of open tendering in NSW

An open tender is open to the whole market. This is an advantage for new businesses wanting to get new contracts because governments have an obligation to frequently test the market to choose the suppliers that give the best value. It also prevents a “closed shop” which is not fair. You should see open tendering as an opportunity to sell your goods and services into the public sector. (When we talk about tendering NSW, Tenders NSW, we refer to the tendering NSW website, which is an online portal for the NSW government in Sydney. eTendering NSW is the process for tendering online using this portal!)

Government open tenders in Australia

Open tenders are publicised in Sydney and national newspapers and online. You should enrol on government websites to receive notifications or newsletters of tenders relevant to your business. An example is the Australian Government tender site, AusTender, www.tenders.gov.au. It publishes Australian Government business opportunities, annual procurement plans, multi-use lists and contracts awarded. Each state government has its own tendering site:

We highly recommend that you register your information on some or all of these sites if you are looking for government work.

Most local Governments also have their own tender pages. And you should also be aware that there are commercial organisations that provide access to all tenders available in the market for a small fee.
