Hundreds of pre-qualified sellers
All sellers on the Digital Marketplace Panel are assessed for corporate stability, digital expertise and value for money before they can apply for an opportunity. You still need to consider if a seller is suitable for your needs, and perform any required due diligence.
Publish quickly and easily
First-time buyers have reported they can create and publish a brief within 30 minutes. Briefs remain open for either 1 or 2 weeks. So, if what you need is straightforward, you can have a proposal or resumes on your desk in a little over a week.
Competitive market prices
On average 15 sellers compete for every opportunity, which naturally creates a range of options to achieve value for money. See the daily rates trends charts.
Support meeting diversity aims
Sellers can elect to showcase their Indigenous, disability or diversity status through badges that are searchable, which helps buyers’ policy requirements, for example the Indigenous Procurement Policy (IPP).
Meeting the Indigenous Procurement Policy (IPP) requirements
The Marketplace helps buyers meet their Indigenous Procurement Policy (IPP) obligations. We do this by listing all currently approved indigenous sellers. Buyers can filter by ‘indigenous business’ in the seller catalogue. This also helps support and grow the indigenous business sector within government. The Marketplace verifies indigenous sellers with Supply Nation — Australia’s leading database of verified indigenous businesses.
Simpler due diligence
The Digital Marketplace provides a single source for seller insurances and financials that you need in your enhanced due diligence. Insurance documentation will be available through the seller profile. Financial documentation will be available on request when you are considering awarding a contract.
With hundreds of new sellers onboarding in a richer content environment we’ve added keyword search on content and badges to help you source the expertise you need.
