Government Contract Directory

    The Government Contract Directory is the source document for discount Common Use Arrangements for public sector organisations. It is a complicated document, so the ODU has created short-cut instructions for finding one or two-day training courses.

    The original document has more detailed information about processes. If you wish to use it to order training please follow the instructions below. Remember that it is important to:

    ; Gain approval from your manager to undertake the training.

    ; Ensure your request complies with Curtin’s Purchasing Policy and procedures. (Three

    quotes are not required when purchasing CUA training courses.)

    ; Use the CUA order form. (Use a Curtin Credit Card instead of the Government

    Purchasing Card.)
