Panel Arrangements


A panel arrangement is a way to procure goods or services regularly acquired by entities. In a panel arrangement, suppliers have been appointed to supply goods or services for a set period of time under agreed terms and conditions, including agreed pricing.

Apply to a Panel Arrangement

You can contact Council any time to apply to be considered as part of the Panel Arrangements.

Please email Council with a summary of your business including which panel you would be interested in applying to.

Council will send you an application to complete. Upon return, applications are assessed by Council evaluation committees and a response provided to businesses on the outcomes of their application. 

Council panels are perpetual with in-takes on a quarterly basis. 

Register on the Supplier Portal

Council is releasing a brand-new Supplier Portal (the Portal) in 2024.

To take advantage of the opportunities that the portal presents, Suppliers must be registered.

It's entirely free for Suppliers and, once registered, Supplier can self-manage procurement processes with Council buyers in one central location. 

Council will notify existing Suppliers when the Portal is live and update the Council website.
