Australia: Suppliers to benefit from Australian procurement law reform

15 Apr 19: New laws set to take effect in Australia promise to incentivise better procurement practices among Commonwealth agencies by strengthening the rights of suppliers when challenging defective procurement. The Government Procurement (Judicial Review) Act 2018, due to come into effect on 18 April 2019 at the latest, provides suppliers with access to more effective remedies in cases where Commonwealth procurement rules have been breached by agencies, including access to injunctive relief or compensation.
