An Ethical Supplier Mandate and Threshold have been introduced to ensure businesses supplying to Queensland Government are ethical in their business practices. Non-compliant suppliers will be removed from our supply chain.
Read more about how the Ethical Supplier Mandate and Threshold affect the supplying processes:
Before engaging a supplier
Unless you are using a prequalified supplier, you must check if the supplier has been suspended. You must not engage suppliers suspended under the Mandate, or not meeting the Threshold, when buying for the Queensland Government.
A prequalified supplier means a supplier registered with:
- The Prequalification System of the Capital Works Management Framework
- The National Prequalification System for Civil (Road and Bridge) Construction Contracts
- Arrangements administered by General Goods and Services, Department of Housing and Public Works.
- QBuild Register
Check the register
You must use a computer or device connected to the government network to check the register.
The register includes companies only. If the supplier is not a registered company (e.g. sole trader or partnership), email email@example.com or phone 1300 10 50 30 to have us check the supplier's status for you.
To check, enter the supplier’s Australian Company Number (ACN). You can enter the number with or without spaces. E.g. 818 456 675 or 818456675.
Keep a record of this supplier check
After checking the register, you must keep a record of the supplier’s status. Print the page or save as a PDF.
Buyers must be able to provide evidence they have checked the supplier’s status.
