Market driven ideas

If you are a business or not-for-profit organisation you can approach the government with a proposal even if it hasn’t been formally requested.

This is called a market led proposal.

Market led proposals can cover a range of areas including:

  • the delivery of services to or on behalf of government
  • the provision of infrastructure.

There are rules you must follow if you want to submit a proposal outside of the usual procurement process.

The market led proposals policy was developed to ensure proposals are managed in a fair, transparent and accountable way.
