The purpose of Council's Code for Tenders and Contracts (Code), is to provide a policy framework on best practice tendering and procurement methods in line with the requirements of the Local Government Act 1993 (the Act) and the Local Government (General) Regulations 2015 (Regulations).
The Act and Regulations require the Council to invite tenders for any contract it intends to enter into for the supply or provision of goods or services valued at or above the Prescribed Amount. For purchases under the Prescribed Amount alternate procurement processes will apply.
