While the State Procurement Policy applies to all government procurement, some extra principles and guidelines are relevant only for the procurement of ICT products and/or services, including:
- Government and Industry Principles of Engagement on ICT—set out the expected standards and behaviours for both government agencies and ICT suppliers
- Information Standard 13 Procurement and Disposal of ICT Products and Services—complements the State Procurement Policy and contains additional principles and guidelines relevant only to the procurement of ICT products and/or services
- Government Information Technology Contracting Framework (GITC V5)—contains standard contractual terms and conditions for procuring ICT products and services
- $2 Million Review process—examines ICT product and/or service purchases where the total expenditure exceeds $2 million (including GST)
- Peer Review submissions—required when initiatives involve any ICT related investment or contract renewal.
- SME Participation Scheme—helps ICT small to medium enterprises (SMEs) gain greater access to the Queensland Government ICT market.
In addition, ministerial briefs are prepared for any budget proposal with an ICT component, which is presented to cabinet or the Cabinet Budget Review Committee, to ensure all significant ICT investments are aligned with and support government's long-term direction.
