What this service does
The Digital Marketplace is a digital government service. It is comprised of a:
- procurement panel (SON3413842) compliant with Commonwealth Procurement Rules
- website with seller catalogue and government opportunities
This panel was established through an open approach to market by the Digital Transformation Agency. It complies with the requirements of conducting an open tender. All panel members have accepted our Master Agreement. You can also download the Master Agreement as a PDF (PDF 229KB).
- find sellers on the panel using the seller catalogue
- invite new sellers to join at any time
- hire a digital specialist
- publish a digital outcome opportunity (for example, a multi-million dollar website project)
- publish a training opportunity to build your team's digital capability
- download responses and award contracts through the Marketplace
- view and respond to opportunities published on the Marketplace
- Sign up at any time and offer new services to government
- request assessment to offer services on the panel
Who can be a buyer?
Buyers are from local, state, territory or federal government. Commonwealth corporate entities (CCE’s) can also use the Marketplace, for example, the ABC, the National Museum of Australia and most universities.
