Approved sellers can submit responses to buyers who publish opportunities to:
- Seek proposals and quotes
- Ask the market for Expressions of Interest (EOI) or Requests for Information (RFI)
- Hire digital specialists
- Get training for digital skills
New sellers can join any time. To submit responses you must:
- Register to become a seller on the Digital Marketplace. You will be asked for your business details and to submit your financial and insurance documents.
- Accept the Master Agreement. This is the basis of any contracts you may be awarded.
- You must request an assessment from your dashboard and be approved in the relevant category before you can respond to opportunities.
Submitting documents as a startup
As a startup, you may not yet have financial documents. In this case, you must provide a letter from your accountant to confirm your financial viability.
Professional Indemnity and Public Liability Insurance
You must have professional indemnity and public liability insurance before you’re engaged in any work by government buyers.
At our discretion we may allow you to join the Digital Marketplace without these policies in place, but only in limited circumstances.
If you are permitted to join the Digital Marketplace without professional indemnity and/or public liability insurance, you must confirm that you will be eligible to take out suitable policies before a buyer engages you.
You must provide your state’s relevant workers compensation certification.
If you are not eligible to register for workers compensation you must provide a signed declaration that you are ineligible.
As a recruiter you can join the Digital Marketplace if you can offer candidates with digital expertise.
Labour hire licence
If you plan to submit candidates for positions located in some states, you must hold a current labour hire licence.
- Apply for a labour hire license in Queensland
- Apply for a labour hire license in Victoria
- Apply for a labour hire licence in ACT
Recruiters must include margins and markup in the application. If you register as both recruiter and consultant, you must also request assessment and be approved in any category you offer before you can respond to opportunities.
Once you submit your application
We will review your information to check you are a legitimate business. We aim to review and assess applications within two weeks. Delays may be experienced if:
- your application is incomplete or incorrect
- the Digital Marketplace is experiencing a high demand for application assessments.
If we approve your application, your profile will be listed in the seller catalogue. This includes your name, business summary, panel categories you are approved to offer, and any badges that identify your unique characteristics. Only registered buyers logged in to the Digital Marketplace are able to see and search for more detailed information about you.
Get assessed for services you offer
Sellers can offer services in a range of categories on the Marketplace.
To offer a service, you must request an assessment and be approved for the relevant categories.
