Tenders & Procurement
We will be moving to a new e-tendering portal as of 1 January 2020.
We are encouraging all contractors and suppliers that wish to continue to tender for works with us to register through our new e-tendering portal. If you or your company already has an Open Windows eTenderBox account you do not need to re-register. Click on below link for instructions on how to register for eTenderBox.
Our publicly advertised tenders can be downloaded through our page on the TenderLink website.
You will need to be registered with TenderLink to download tender documents. Registration is free.
The Tender Process explains the steps from tender open period through to contract award.
Tender Method of Evaluation
The Tender Method of Evaluation shows how we compare alternatives so that the best value for money offer is chosen.
Tender & Contract Confidentiality
The Tender and Confidentiality document sets out the general policy that we use for tenders and contracts.
Working for Council as a Contractor or Supplier
We have a list of prequalified suppliers that is used to help decide who to ask to quote for goods and services. This list contains contractors and suppliers who have the ability to manage occupational health and safety requirements, and have up-to-date insurance.
To apply for prequalification with us, complete and return the Application for Registration (below). There is no fee involved in applying for prequalification.
Prequalification of a contractor or supplier doesn't guarantee an invitation to quote.
All of our purchases are in accordance with Council Terms and Conditions (below). As a contractor or supplier, you will be required to adhere to these Terms and Conditions at all times.
If you require assistance completing the registration form please contact the Procurement Team on 1300 BCOAST (226 278) or (03) 5671 2211.
All new or existing contractors working in our buildings or worksites must complete a Contractor Induction. The induction is mandatory and helps us manage safety standards in our workplaces for all contractors and employees.
