Draft Procurement Policy

On display until 05 July 2024, 05:00 PM

In accordance with Section 108 (5) of the Local Government Act 2020, Council is required at least once in every four-year term of Council to review its current Procurement Policy.

The Policy was last reviewed and revised in 2021 to meet the requirement of the revised provisions of the Local Government Act 2020 and was adopted by Council on 24 June 2021.

Following the Internal Audit into Procurement completed in May 2023, several findings and recommendations were identified. Those recommendations have been incorporated into the draft revised Procurement Policy.

Council also undertook benchmarking of other Council’s Procurement Policies in considering changes to be made.

We encourage community members to view the Draft Procurement Policy and provide your feedback.

The policy will be on exhibition for a period of six weeks, allowing time for submissions to be reviewed and the final policy to be adopted in coming months.
