About Business Ready QAssure

Business Ready QAssure is a digital service developed and managed by CCIQ – Queensland’s peak business body.

Business Ready QAssure is an accreditation process which seeks to easily connect contract ready and qualified ICT suppliers with public and private sector organisations seeking their services.

Our approval is not given without considerable checks and balances. Only ICT suppliers that are credible and fit for purpose are accredited. As a result, our Business Ready QAssure tick of approval gives vendors confidence the businesses we list are registered, insured, viable and don't have ASIC form.

How accreditation works

Business Ready QAssure qualifies ICT suppliers assisting Queensland Government procurement, local council procurement and private sector customers in cutting red tape and inefficiencies.

It seeks to set up a win-win environment where the best Queensland ICT suppliers are ready to be selected for Queensland-based jobs.

The way it works is simple.

First, ICT suppliers register their business details online, including their capabilities, financials and insurances.

Then, after CCIQ checks and approvals process, accredited businesses are provided with a Business Ready QAssure number and are listed for 12 months on our website. Any organisation seeking an ICT professional – both public and private sector clients – can search our register.

There is no fee to search our register, or to contact an ICT professional for work.

At the end of 12 months, ICT suppliers are invited to revisit the accreditation process, or are withdrawn from the register. This way, details available are up-to-date, and clients seeking ICT services are assured the information is always trusted, relevant and of high quality.

Over 20,000 unique users access the site each month.
