Draft Procurement Policy 2021 - 2025
Why are we doing this?
In accordance with the Local Government Act 2020, Council is required to prepare and adopt a Procurement Policy which specifies the principles, processes and procedures applying in respect of the purchase of goods, works and services. The Policy sets out Council’s commitment to implement procurement practices that provide social value to the community by including economic, social and environmental outcomes, including a focus on the promotion of opportunities for local businesses.
Council must review its procurement policy at least once during each 4 year term of the Council.
