POL is the Department of Employment, Small Business and Training's online system providing a secure and confidential way for registered training organisations (RTOs) to apply to deliver publicly-funded training in Queensland.

It is the only way a pre-qualified supplier (PQS) application can be submitted to the department.

To submit an application to become a PQS, an RTO must first apply to the department for a Purchasing Online (POL) account.

Applying for a POL account

Applying for a POL account involves three steps:

  1. reading and agreeing to abide by the POL terms of use and privacy statement
  2. submitting the POL Application form (PDF, 330KB)
  3. submitting a fully completed Purchasing Online Authorisation Form (PDF, 264KB).

Note: obtaining a Purchasing Online account does not provide the applicant with PQS status.

For more information on POL and how to access your account, refer to the Purchasing Online fact sheet (PDF, 212KB).
