“Buy local” procurement policy
Council proudly supports locally-owned and operated businesses, including those with an office or branch in our region. Council has strengthened its ‘Buy Local’ Procurement Policy to further boost that assistance.
To view the policy, follow the link below:
Local Government Association of Queensland - Local Buy
Local Buy is the Local Government Association of Queensland (LGAQ) procurement services company.
Local Buy develops contractual arrangements for use by Queensland councils and government entities, eliminating the need for government authorities to establish their own supply contracts. A contract established by Local Buy enables councils and government entities to purchase a diverse range of goods and services from Local Buy contractors.
You can view Local Buy procurement opportunities, download tender documents and lodge tender submissions via the Local Buy website.
The terms of business govern the purchase of goods and/or services by council. These are the terms of business referred to in council’s purchase orders and apply to any contract entered into by council and a supplier, unless other terms and conditions are specifically agreed at time of contract award. By accepting to supply the items described in a council purchase order, suppliers agree to be bound by and accept these terms and conditions.
Council’s goods and services providers should view the Terms of Business document to ensure compliance with council’s payment terms, insurance, workplace health and safety and pricing requirements.
