Did you know Council provides a huge range of services and infrastructure to the community?  We can’t do this alone - we need to work with contractors. 

How does Council engage contractors?

Often Council will seek quotations or tenders for maintenance, goods, plant, general services, civil works, construction and consultancy.

When seeking external contractors, Council must ensure it

  • obtains best value
  • is open, transparent and accountable in its dealings
  • ensures its dealings promote fairness and competition.

Council currently advertises public opportunities on the 'Tenders and Quotations' section of the Council website, in the local newspapers, the Sydney Morning Herald and through the Tenderlink portal. To use the electronic tendering system, and to access the tenders being called, you must first be a registered supplier.

To register, click on the link and select the “Registration” tab. As a registered supplier, you can receive email notification of any new tenders we publish, download and view the documentation electronically, and participate in forums to seek clarification or to ask questions. Where available, submission of your bids can be completed through the e-tender box facility. Alternatively you can view and purchase a hard copy of the tender documents from Council’s Customer Service Centre.

The Tenders and Quotations section of Council’s website also contains information on how to get registered with Tenderlink, current opportunities, a list of responses received to recently advertised opportunities, details of recently awarded contracts and tender FAQ’s.
