Description

As part of the 2018-19 Budget and in response to the Black Economy Taskforce’s Final Report, the Government announced a range of measures to tackle the black economy including a commitment that, from 1 July 2019, Government procurement processes will exclude businesses that do not have a satisfactory tax record.

Increasing the integrity of Commonwealth Government procurement processes promotes good tax behaviour and creates an even playing field for businesses that comply with their tax obligations.

This document is a procurement-connected policy (PCP) that sets out the key components to increase the integrity of Commonwealth Government procurement and provides guidance to assist Commonwealth entities to implement the policy.
