Rule 23:
Third-party agents

Explains how an agency may use third-party agents in their procurement.

  1. An agency may purchase the services of a third-party agent (eg an external procurement consultant) to advise, arrange or manage a procurement, or part of a procurement, on its behalf.
  2. If an agency uses a third-party agent to conduct and manage a procurement, the agency, through the agent, must still comply with the Rules.

Procurement advice

You can’t avoid applying the Rules by procuring through a third-party supplier. Even if your third-party supplier is an agency that is not required to apply the Rules (Rule 5.1), if you are required to apply the Rules, your third party supplier will also be required to apply them for and on your behalf.
