Strategic Procurement Outlook
The Australian Trade and Investment Commission (Austrade) contributes to Australia's economic prosperity by helping Australian businesses, education institutions, tourism operators, governments and citizens as they:
develop international markets
win productive foreign direct investment
promote international education
strengthen Australia's tourism industry
seek consular and passport services.
We achieve this by generating market information and insight, promoting Australian capabilities, developing policy, making connections through an extensive global network of contacts, leveraging the badge of government offshore and providing quality advice and services.
We aim to create value for our business sector, and do it in a way that represents a good investment for the taxpayer. And we seek to do all this in a way that meets or exceeds all appropriate standards of ethical behaviour.
Our role is to advance Australia's international trade, investment, education and tourism interests by providing information, advice and services.
help Australian companies to grow their business in international markets, including through administration of the Export Market Development Grants (EMDG) scheme and the TradeStart program
provide coordinated government assistance to attract and facilitate productive foreign direct investment (FDI) into Australia
promote the Australian education sector in international markets and assist Australian education providers with market information
provide advice to the Australian Government on its trade, tourism and investment policy agenda
develop policy, manage programs and provide research to strengthen Australia's tourism industry and to grow Australia's tourism market share
deliver Australian consular, passport and other government services in designated overseas locations
manage the Building Brand Australia program to enhance awareness of contemporary Australian skills and capability and enrich Australia's global reputation.
The Annual Procurement Plan
The Annual Procurement Plan (APP) is designed to draw suppliers' early attention to potential procurement opportunities. The anticipated procurements described in this APP are expected to have an approach to market within the 2017/18 financial year and future years where known.
The information in this plan is based on the best information available at the time of publication and will be updated to maintain currency. Austrade has established arrangements (including exclusive and non-exclusive agreements as well as panel arrangements) for a wide range of goods and services. Proposed procurement through these arrangements is not included.
