Reliable housing means more than a safe roof over our heads – it’s one part of finding stability in other areas of our lives, including work, school and within the wider community.
At Procurement Australia, we are passionate about social procurement. When it comes to housing, we are committed in partnership with our members, to doing our part to help vulnerable families and individuals in need secure safe and affordable temporary accommodation or an ongoing place to live.
As part of our dedication to this work, we have worked alongside our partners to provide a range of property-related services and solutions for our members who work in the social, affordable and community housing spaces. We know how important it is for our members to be able to rely on the right product and service options for the development, management and maintenance of these vital properties and homes. For our members who provide housing and accommodation for those most vulnerable in our community, the stakes are even higher. Every second and dollar counts to help more people into housing that is safe, welcoming and ready to live in.
That’s where our Smart Property Solution comes in. This solution has been specifically designed to meet the varying needs of our members who work tirelessly to provide the most vulnerable Australians with a safe place to call home.
What is Procurement Australia's Smart Property Solution?
Procurement Australia’s Smart Property Solution is a one-stop-shop for our members working in the various housing sectors looking to better manage all their facility needs from the inside out. This solution provides a hassle-free way for Procurement Australia members to manage every element of the accommodation process, from fitouts and minor works through to the provision of household white goods, furniture and even plates and knives and forks.
Our Smart Property Solution is the result of many years’ experience working with members in the housing sector. Originally created to assist members set-up housing for recently arrived refugee families to Australia, our Smart Property Solution has now expanded to include other welfare and humanitarian programs and projects, including those related to disability services, mental health facilities, and respite and aged care.

Participating members in the solution are also able to leverage our history of success in this space, including our long-standing relationships with renowned suppliers and our team’s ability to manage this solution from end-to-end.
