Doing Business With Us

Tenders, Quotations and Expressions of Interest

We're inviting local businesses to register with VendorPanel Marketplace to access opportunities to work with us.

We're rolling out the VendorPanel Marketplace platform from 1 July 2020, replacing the former process for requesting quotations, proposals, tenders and expressions of interest (collectively known as RFx).

The good news for business is that VendorPanel simplifies the RFx process and is also used by many NSW and national public sector organisations. VendorPanel is widely used across NSW – so one registration means exposure to other councils and agencies and many procurement opportunities.

Registering will mean you can look for new business opportunities -  a valuable tool to expand your business.

If you’re already a registered supplier with Council, make sure you register on VendorPanel Marketplace before 1 July 2020 when Council will commence using the new platform.

If you are already a registered VendorPanel supplier we recommend that you revisit your listing, ensuring you’re checked into Marketplace and that your lists and categories are up to date. 

How to register:

It’s FREE and only takes a couple of minutes. Once you have registered you will be able to add colleagues to your company profile. You and your colleagues must be registered to be invited to respond to new opportunities and will then be able to submit offers.

All tendering in NSW Local Government is governed by the NSW Local Government Act 1993, Section 55 and the NSW Local Government (General) Regulation 2005, Part 7.

Current Contracts

In accordance with the Government Information Public Access Act (GIPA), Council is required to keep a register of government contracts worth $150,000 or more between agencies and private sector bodies. 

Information for recently awarded contracts can be found in our Government contracts register

Statement of Business Ethics

In addition to the Procurement Policy, Council has adopted a Statement of Business Ethics.

The Statement provides guidance for all organisations when doing business with Council. It outlines the Council’s ethical standards and our expectation that goods and service providers and contractors will comply with these standards in all their dealings with us. The Statement also outlines what providers and contractors can expect of the Council.

Our Procurement Policy and the Statement of Business Ethics are designed to be consistent with our obligations under the Local Government Act 1993 and related regulations. Our staff is expected to maintain high standards of integrity and ethical conduct, consistent with the positions of trust they hold and we expect no less of the service providers and contractors that undertake work for us.

The Statement is designed to ensure that business relationships between service providers and contractors are fair and productive for all.
