18.3.0 Unsolicited proposals

An unsolicited proposal is a proposal received that is not in response to any agency-initiated solicitation. This policy for unsolicited proposals applies only to IT goods and services. Agencies may encourage the supplier community to submit unsolicited proposals offering new and innovative technology goods, services and solutions including those which would provide significant cost savings to the Commonwealth. Unsolicited proposals allow suppliers to introduce unique and innovative ideas or approaches that have been developed outside of government to be made available to agencies.
