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. If you are a procuring agency governed by the Queensland Procurement Policy and you cannot access the register, please contact the Ethical Supply Team on email@example.com.
For remote-access users
If you are accessing a departmental device using remote access portal CITRIX, your access to this tool should be unaffected.
Please note if you are using a personal device using remote access portal CITRIX, you will be unable to access this tool as your device and network will not be recognised. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for a manual check to be completed on these occasions. We appreciate your patience during this time and will respond as quickly as possible.
The register includes companies and sole traders or partnerships.
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.
