Commissioning Adelaide PHN - An Australian Government Initiative


The Adelaide PHN (APHN) receives funding from the Australian Government Department of Health to commission services which meet the health needs of the Adelaide metropolitan community.

Commissioning is: “a strategic approach to procurement that is informed by the baseline needs assessment and associated market analysis. Commissioning will enable a more holistic approach in which PHNs can plan and contract medical and health care services that are appropriate and relevant to the needs of their communities. Commissioning is further characterised by ongoing assessment to monitor the quality of services and ensure that relevant contractual standards are fulfilled.” (Australian Government Department of Health (2014) - Primary Health Network Programme Guidelines).

The APHN Commissioning Governance Framework addresses the five phases of the Commissioning Cycle, click here to see the APHN Commissioning Cycle diagram.

The APHN has established an e-Procurement website through TenderLink, to provide health service providers, contractors, consultants and suppliers with access to a range of commissioning opportunities.

To view our current commissioning opportunities please register with Tenderlink  - and importantly create your provider profile to receive email alerts of new commissioning opportunities as they are advertised.

The APHN has made available a suite of population health resources on our community profile and needs.
