Register your Interest We encourage businesses interested in working with us to register their details by completing the online Registration for Local Supplier Database form. Information provided through this free registration portal will be kept within our Local Supplier Database. The online form requests details about your business, capability and the categories of goods and services offered. This is a quick and easy form to complete. You can also download the form to print and submit. Apply to be considered on the Panel Arrangement Council has a significant interest in specific areas in which it trades in large volumes on a very frequent basis i.e. Plant Hire, Civil Construction, Trade or Professional services to the supply of goods from Fleet to Fuel. This Panel Arrangement will streamline procurement which means that we will be able to engage with you more efficiently than we have done previously. You can contact Council, now or into the future, to apply to be considered as part of the Panel Arrangements. For more information, download the Panel Arrangement Fact Sheet. Doing business with our Major Contractors At times, Council will have major contracts and projects that are required to go to tender. Council will provide all interested parties tendering for major contracts, a copy of our Local Supplier Database to be considered as suppliers and or subcontractors for these contracts. In assessing tenders, Council will consider the level of local supplier participation in a tender for a major contract. Attending a Regional Procurement Roadshow Every year, Council aims to hold a Regional Procurement Roadshow to inform our local businesses of upcoming work, what procurement looks like at Council, how you can get involved and find out what options would best suit your business.
