Becoming a Council Supplier
Council is keen to involve interested and suitably qualified local businesses, as we implement projects and provide services to the Goulburn Mulwaree community.
As a public authority, Council is required to demonstrate accountability and transparency in all procurement processes which includes evidence of various insurance & compliance requirements.
NOTE: As with all other NSW councils, Council have access to provider panels established under legislation by prescribed persons. These panels are generally the preferred method of provider engagement, when available.
For information regarding these externally tendered panel opportunities, please email email@example.com
For purchases of outsourced goods, services and expertise valued at less than $250,000 and based on the planned budget, Council will generally:
- Issue RFQs under prescribed panel agreements (as above); or
- Issue selective quotations; or
- Establish supplier panels for specific services for a contracted term.
The establishment of the supplier panels is via a tender process and will be advertised in the media and the Council e-tendering portal called TenderLink. (See details below)
As legislated, all projects or contracts (either Public Tenders or Expressions of Interest) valued at more than $250,000 will be publicly advertised in the media and will only be issued & managed via the TenderLink portal. This will typically include the establishment of supplier panels.
As GMC have a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the other councils of the Canberra Regional Joint Organisation (CRJO) this means you will also be advised of any relevant tenders issued by these other Councils, broadening your business opportunities.
TenderLink is a self-registration portal requiring general business information and preferred tender category types.
Provider self-registration on TenderLink is at: https://www.tenderlink.com/goulburn/
NOTE: Registration at the portal is no guarantee of offer or engagement.
