Contracts WA is the starting point of your buying journey for goods and services available under Western Australia's whole-of-government contracts.

 

These contracts, otherwise known as Common Use Arrangements (CUAs), exist for goods commonly bought by government, for example fuel, computers, electricity, travel, advertising, groceries and stationery.

 

Regional Buying Arrangements (RBAs) exist for regional purchasing. Examples of these include groceries, agricultural products and waste services.


CUAs and RBAs deliver more than just savings through pre-negotiated pricing. They also offer efficiencies like easy ordering and risk mitigation strategies such as strict due diligence practices as part of the tendering process. These contracts have you covered when it comes to compliance with relevant government policy and insurance
requirements, too.


Most CUAs are mandatory in the Perth metropolitan area. Before you buy, check that your purchase falls within your organisation's procurement policies.


The CUA Approved Users List shows the Public Authorities, other government organisations and Public Benevolent Institutions that have approval from the Department of Finance to buy from most CUAs.

To make sure your chosen supplier gives you CUA prices, always quote the CUA number and identify yourself as a government buyer.


If you need help making the most of a particular CUA, contact the contract manager for help.
