General Services 57 Public liability insurance in Government tender documents for the supply of off the shelf goods and for many management consultancies, was reviewed resulting in a reduction from $10 million to $0.5 million. This change ensures that insurance requirements in Government contracts are commensurate with the risk and do not impose an unrealistic and costly impost on business. The new public liability insurance amounts will come into effect from 1 July 2004. As part of procurement reform, working with NT Treasury the Branch prepared a discussion paper aimed at introducing a simplified tendering process for all government procurement between $10,000 and $50,000. The concept was publicly launched in early June and was open for public comment prior to Government considering the proposal. This graph shows the method of tender issue as a % for each year over the past five years. The trend, showing progressive increases in the number of contracts being downloaded electronically, has continued this year, with the corresponding decrease in manually issued tender documents. Posted tender documents have remained unchanged for the past two years. This graphs shows the method of tender lodgement as a % for each year for the past three years. This year shows a marked increase in the number of electronically lodged tenders from 8% in 2002/03 to just over 20% this year. The target of 50% by the 2005/2006 financial year seems realistic and achievable. The increased trend to use electronic tender alternatives supports industrys move to e-business. 0% 20% 40% 60% 80% 100% 2001/02 2002/03 2003/2004 Te nd er lo dg em en t a s a % Hard copy Electronic Facsimilie 0 10 20 30 40 50 60 70 80 19 99 /00 20 00 /01 20 01 /02 20 02 /03 20 03 /20 04 % o f T en de rs Is su ed Downloaded from Internet Issued at counter Posted
