Council publishes all public/open tenders over $250,000 in estimated value through the TenderLink portal.
We encourage current and potential suppliers to register with TenderLink. Registration is free.
Registered suppliers receive email notifications of new opportunities published by Council and have the ability to:
- download and view any associated documentation
- participate in Q&A forums
- submit electronic bid responses through our secure, e-tender box facility.
Late submissions will not be considered.
Tender Evaluation and review
Every submission will be reviewed by a tender evaluation panel in accordance with the criteria listed in the Request for Tender documents.
The panel will examine it for compliance with the conditions of tendering. Each tender submission is read in detail and examined. The strengths and weaknesses of each tender are recorded.
You will be advised in writing if your submission was successful or not once Council has considered the responses.
A conforming tender is one that meets the conditions outlined in the Request for Tender document and all requirements of these specifications. A tender may be ruled non-conforming if the submission is incomplete, does not meet the requirements of the specification or contract as required under the Request for Tender.
The panel will base procurement decisions on a principle of "value for money" rather than "lowest costs".
Lobbying councillors or staff is prohibited and may disqualify you from the process.
