Submitting documents as a start-up
As a start-up, 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 Marketplace if you can provide candidates with digital expertise.
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.
