Senate Order on entity contracts

The Senate Order on entity contracts, also known as the Murray Motion, requires each minister to table a letter in the Senate for each reporting period, outlining compliance with the Senate Order for each entity in their portfolio.

In order to support compliance with the Senate Order, each entity must develop an internet listing twice a year that identifies contracts entered into during the preceding calendar or financial year, valued at or above $100,000 (GST inclusive), along with details relating to each of those contracts. This listing is to include an assurance by the relevant accountable authority that the listed contracts do not contain any inappropriate confidentiality provisions.

The listing should include all contracts with a consideration of $100,000 or more (GST inclusive) that have:

  • not been fully performed as at the end of the reporting period; and/or
  • been entered into during the 12 months prior to the end of the reporting period.

Contracts formed through grants, sales of goods/services by an entity, disposals by an entity, and other financial arrangements are to be included in the internet listing. Contracts formed through procurement are available via the Entity Reports for complying with the Senate Order on Procurement Contracts and use of Confidentiality Provisions page located on the AusTender website.
