Doing Business with Us

We provide funding under a number of programs. For further information access the link to Grants and Other Funding Programs.

We also work with the community and private sectors to improve services for people on low incomes and other disadvantaged groups. We also work with these partners to plan our services and directions. For further information access Housing Partnerships.

We are a major consumer of Tasmanian goods and services and work closely with suppliers to get the best procurement outcomes for us and our clients.

Creditor Invoices Requirements

The Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) Tasmania has improved its invoice processing services through the use of invoice scanning technology. To ensure your invoice is processed efficiently we require a correctly rendered tax invoice to be issued that also includes;

  • A DHHS contact name and section name for the person making the purchase

And if a purchase order was issued for the transaction;

  • The DHHS purchase order number that relates to the transaction we are being invoiced.

It will also assist if you do not place any stickers covering information on your invoice or use staples to attach other documents as they will have to be removed prior to the invoice being scanned and processed.

Please only send one copy of an invoice to the person/area requesting the goods/services.

DHHS Purchase Order Requirements

The DHHS preferred method of purchasing is through the use of official purchase orders. The scanning technology will match your invoice to a purchase order number meaning processing is conducted efficiently. It is recommended that a purchase order is issued by DHHS staff when requesting goods/services.
