Strategic Procurement Outlook: The National Library of Australia is a major centre for scholarship and research. We build, care for and provide access to a national collection of material in many forms.  The Library is not a prescribed entity under the Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Act 2013 for purposes of the Commonwealth Procurement Rules but has chosen to comply with the principles and processes wherever appropriate.

The Financial Year 2017-18 provides procurement opportunities in a number of different collection and facilities management areas.

The procurements listed in this forecast are anticipated at the time of creation of the Plan and as revised.  However, there is no guarantee that any or all purchases will proceed; or that they will proceed at the time planned; or of the actual manner of approach to the market place.
