Doing Business with Council
The goal of Logan City Council is to ensure that expenditure of public funds results in the best cost/value ratio. Potential suppliers will be given fair and equitable consideration of each tender or quotation submitted.
Logan City Council encourages local industry to tender/quote for the provision of Council's requirements, Council advertises tenders in The Courier Mail and actively seeks quotations from local suppliers.
Logan City Council's Sound Contracting Principles
Council must consider the following when procuring goods and services for Council, no matter how large or small:
- Value for money
- Open and effective competition
- The development of competitive local business and industry
- Environmental protection
- Ethical behaviour and fair dealing.
VendorPanel Marketplace - Engaging our Local Market
Logan City Council is introducing a new e-Procurement process commencing July 2016, designed to boost the local economy and drive business to local suppliers.
VendorPanel Marketplace will be used by Council employees when there is no preferred or pre-qualified supplier arrangement in place and where the intended expenditure is below $220,000 (inclusive of GST). At the heart of this solution, Logan City Council is trying to make it easier to engage with local suppliers and the open market, give small medium enterprises better access to Council opportunities and increase governance and transparency in the quotation process.
This new e-Procurement system is an opportunity for businesses in the open market to have their goods and services seen by Council, it’s free for suppliers to register and is easy to use.
Suppliers can register by visiting the VendorPanel Marketplace website and following the simple 5 step process.
For more information on the VendorPanel Marketplace system please contact the Corporate Procurement Program on 07 3412 5377 or the VendorPanel support team on 03 9095 6181.
Advertisement of Tender opportunities
When the intended expenditure is greater than $220,000 (inclusive of GST) Council must invite public tenders, where no exception under the Local Government (Finance, Plans and Reporting) - Regulations 2010 from inviting public tenders is utilised.
Tenders are available via LGTenderbox.
It is recommended if a supplier is looking for opportunities to supply Council they register on the LGTenderbox website to receive all tender opportunities via email at the time of publishing, free of charge.
