Ethical supplier requirements
The Queensland Government's Buy Queensland 2023 approach to government procurement is about supporting quality, local jobs, boosting the Queensland economy and leaving a lasting positive legacy for current and future generations of Queenslanders. This includes investing in ethically, environmentally and socially responsible suppliers that deliver genuine, quality, secure and ongoing local jobs with fair pay and safe working conditions for Queenslanders.
When you tender for a share of Queensland Government business, we consider whether you're an ethical supplier who upholds the ethical, environmental and social commitments set out in our tender documents, contracts, and relevant policies and laws.
We will make responsible public procurement choices by only doing business with suppliers that comply with the ethical supplier requirements established in the:
- Ethical Supplier Threshold
- Ethical Supplier Mandate (where applicable)
- Queensland Government Supplier Code of Conduct 2023.

Note: The fact sheet for government suppliers will be progressively reviewed as part of Buy Queensland 2023 implementation.
