Tenders

When do you invite tenders?

We invite tenders for all procurement valued at $300,000 and above (including GST) for goods, services or works.

The amount is based on the estimated total expenditure, including extension options, contingencies and GST.

This is in accordance with our 2021-2025 Procurement Policy (PDF, 415KB).

Where do you advertise tenders?

We advertise all public tenders in The Age newspaper each Saturday in the ‘Local government tender’ section.

If a strong focus on local supply is required, we may also advertise in one of the local news media that is distributed throughout the municipality.

Similarly, we may need to focus on national distribution. In these cases, we’ll collaborate with the relevant council officers to determine the best news media to provide the widest access to the relevant marketplace.
