Australian Government Tender Opportunities

Australian Government Tender Opportunities

The 2023-2024 budget will continue to see finances directed towards major projects, with an estimated total percentage of gross domestic product (GDP) of 36.4% – which is a 5% increase on the previous year. *source

With this increase, the Australian Furniture Association recognise that helping members win these opportunities can be incredibly beneficial. As the peak industry body for the Australian furniture sector, the AFA has a deep understanding of the intricacies involved in crafting compelling bids, grant proposals and tenders.

In today’s highly competitive landscape, SME’s need to effectively communicate their value in order to secure tender/bid opportunities – which can ultimately make or break the growth and sustainability of many businesses.
