The UTAS Finance Policy and Procedures Manual, Para 10.7, "Tender Board", provides that all purchases in excess of $100,000 must be by way of tender. The Australian Government Solicitor has drafted a template entitled "RFT Template" [Word 695KB]. The template contains standard terms and conditions for use by UTAS staff when conducting a tender and incorporates the standard short form UTAS contract for professional services. If an alternative contract is required, please contact the Legal Office.
The Australian Government Solicitor has also drafted the Probity Guidelines [Word 436KB] for use by UTAS staff to assist them in the conduct of tenders and as a reference for members of tender boards.
If you have any questions regarding the contents or use of the RFT documents, please contact the Legal Office.
