The overall objective of ANZGPA is to promote opportunities for Australian and New Zealand suppliers to compete with government activities based on a cheap price-performance market, through closer cooperation between jurisdictions (parties to the agreement) in the development of purchasing policy. This is achieved through the establishment of a cooperation mechanism between the Parties in order to cooperate in order to ensure the greatest possible consistency between contractual, technical and performance standards and specifications, as well as simplicity and consistency in the application of procurement policies, practices and procedures. Anzgpa has been in existence since 1991, but has recently been reviewed to ensure that it remains appropriate for this purpose due to changing procurement practices.

Where such articles are available from multiple sources or where invitations to tender are issued, all aspects of procurement, with the exception of the tender specifications, shall be subject to the provisions of the Agreement; Market-based proposals (also known as unsolicited proposals) are eligible if implemented in accordance with the Victorian Government Purchasing Board`s Public Procurement Framework.
