Approved Government Model Templates
Explains the requirement for agencies to use Approved Government Model Templates.
- The Procurement Functional Leader issues Approved Government Model Templates (A-GMTs) from time to time. Agencies must operationalise these templates in their procurement activities, regardless of whether or not the Rules apply to the procurement.
More information on Approved Government Model Templates
A-GMTs are developed to improve the consistency of procurement practices across government. They are simple, plain English templates that make it easier for both you and your suppliers to do business.
In order to avoid confusion with general procurement templates (eg the contract register template which agencies can opt to use), A-GMTs are a set of approved templates that you are required to deploy in your procurement activities.
An example of an A-GMT is the Government Model Contract (GMC). In order to operationalise these templates, you must include them in your suite of contract templates and use them as the default templates for all low-value, low-risk common goods and services. For more information see the government model contracts.
