Doing business with us

Doing business with us.jpg

Overview

We are part of a supply chain. To deliver our services to the community, we too must purchase other goods and services.

Because it is public money we spend, our purchasing and procurement practices are stringent. We are required by law to ensure this.

We have a strong culture of wanting to purchase goods locally. This is to strengthen our local economy. However, we must have fair and reasonable procedures for doing so.

Businesses wanting to provide their services to us must first understand our procurement practices. The information in this section explains the pathways for how you might secure work with us.

Purchasing procedures we apply

The Code of Procurement sets the framework for how we purchase and spend public money.

Its purpose is to give guidance to the administration to ensure our rules are applied consistently and there is transparency in our processes.

How we purchase

Quotations

For purchases below $150,000 we follow a quotation procedures or purchase directly from contracts by agencies approved under the local government legislation.   

Tenders

For purchase above $150,000 we conducts a tender or purchases directly from contracts by agencies approved under the local government legislation

The tender threshold is calculated on a GST inclusive amount and where we have one or multiple purchases of the sane goods from the same supplier over any two year period exceeding $150,000.
