Welcome to the website of the State Procurement Board of South Australia.

The State Procurement Board (Board) was formed in 2005 following the establishment of the State Procurement Act 2004.

The Board’s mission is to build an effective and efficient system of public procurement.

The Board’s strategic focus is aimed at delivering a system of public procurement that will:

  • ensure support for the government’s policy objectives and deliver value for money;
  • ensure that procurement activities are seen by all stakeholders as fair, equitable and professionally managed;
  • provide the government with an independent party to oversee procurement activities;
  • identify and disseminate opportunities for improved procurement practices;
  • establish a culture that allows good ideas to be considered and implemented; and
  • promote, support and raise awareness of those areas described above.
