As per Council's Procurement Policy:

  • Council will usually call for tenders for the supply of goods, the provision of services, or the carrying out of works in circumstances where the level of estimated gross value of expenditure exceeds $100,000. Tenders may not be called where the following circumstances apply:
    • An emergency situation has arisen
    • Where the timeframe does not allow it
    • Where the costs of undertaking the competitive process would outweigh any potential benefits.

Council's Contract Register is provided in an attempt to promote market competitiveness - to give potential tenderers warning as to when existing contracts are due to expire.

Any queries in relation to Tenders should be directed to Council's Director Engineering Services (03 6443 8351).

  • Where the gross value of expenditure is between $15,000 and $100,000 procurement staff shall action to obtain at least three written quotes before selecting a supplier.
  • Where the value is below $1,500 (incl GST) - No formal requirements except that approved delegations are observed and a 'Purchasing Checklist' for one-off items is completed. Between $1,500 and $15,000 (incl GST) - Council will seek two verbal quotations with at least one from a local business if available.
