Last day! Have your say on tech SME procurement

James Riley

Local tech and digital services companies have just one more day to participate in the SME Procurement Survey 2024. Submissions close at midnight on Friday March 8.

At a time when the federal government has made procurement reform a priority, and is driving new policy initiatives like the Buy Australia Plan and the Future Made in Australia Office (FMiAO), this short survey provides a snapshot of what’s working and where the frustrations are.

The SME Procurement Survey takes about ten minutes. All data and comments collected are anonymised. The aim of the survey is to give local SME suppliers to government to opportunity to lodge their experience of dealing with government in a safe environment.

All data and comments collected through the survey are anonymised before the results are published in The survey will ask your email address as a bare minimum contextual ID – but your email will not be used for any other purpose, or shared with anyone.

We have allowed plenty of opportunities within the survey for respondents to leave comments about their experience selling to government, and we encourage people to do this. While the empirical data is revealing, it is in the comments that insights can be found.

This is the fourth SME Procurement Survey that has conducted.

We want to hear from suppliers of information technology products and services to the public sector.

This survey seeks to understand whether the Buy Australia Plan or FMiAO has made a material difference to local companies selling into government.

This survey closes at midnight on Friday March 8, 2024. You can start the survey by clicking here.

The empirical results of this survey will be published in and the broader insights used to help inform debate about industry development, sovereign capability and procurement policy.
