2017 Senate Order for entity contracts listing relating to the period 1 January 2017 to 31 December 2017
Pursuant to the Senate Order for entity contracts, a downloadable report (available from AusTender) sets out contracts entered into by the Australian Transaction Reports and Analysis Centre (AUSTRAC), which provide for a consideration to the value of $100,000 or more (GST inclusive) and which:
a. have not been fully performed as at 31 December 2017, or
b. which have been entered into during the 12 months prior to 31 December 2017.
Most of the contracts listed contain confidentiality provisions of a general nature that are designed to protect the confidential information of the parties that may be obtained or generated in carrying out the contract.
The reasons for including such clauses include:
a. ordinary commercial prudence that requires protection of trade secrets, proprietary information and the like; and/or
b. protection of other Commonwealth material and personal information.
The accountable authority of AUSTRAC has assured that the listed contracts do not contain any inappropriate confidentiality provisions.
All procurement contracts required to be listed pursuant to the Senate Order can be found on the AusTender website.
Estimated cost of complying with this Order: $1,424.
Basis of method used to estimate the cost: This has been calculated on the basis of time spent by procurement staff producing this information and an officer placing the entry on AUSTRAC’s website.
