Purchasing from an existing panel or standing offer arrangement Buying ICT goods and services, using Source IT documentation Buying construction services The procurement is not low risk or the CCS clauses are not suitable No contract is required (ie. under $10,000 transactions) It is industry practice to use the suppliers terms and conditions 14 DFAT is entering a financial arrangement that is not a procurement (such as a grant, CCS DFAT SPECIFIC CONTRACT TERMS To address DFAT specific policies and risks associated with DFAT business, the following
