What’s this about?
Councils are responsible for procuring a wide range of goods and services. Tendering is the formal process of seeking offers for the supply of goods or services to meet an identified need or for the disposal of property.
In response to recommendations by the Audit Office in its performance audit on Procurement Management in Local Government, the Office of Local Government (OLG) has undertaken a review of the tendering provisions of the Local Government (General) Regulation 2021 to identify possible amendments that would support councils to make better use of technology when tendering and to achieve greater efficiencies.
OLG is inviting submissions from all stakeholders on the Discussion Paper.
Have your say
Have your say by Friday 15 October 2021.
Submissions may be made online or by downloading and completing the submission form and emailing or posting to the attention of Governance Team – Review of Tendering Regulations.
Submissions should be labelled ‘Review of Tendering Guidelines' and marked to the attention of OLG’s Council Governance Team.
