Council operates a decentralised purchasing system and requests for products and services may come from any of our departments.
For purchases under $150,000 quotations are sought when there is no existing contract and is based on threshold limits:
- purchase above $200,000 - tenders required
- purchases between $15,000 and $150,000 - a minimum of three written quotations
- purchases between $5,000 and $15,000 - two written quotations
- purchases between $1,000 and $4,999 - two verbal quotations
- purchases less than $1,000 - preferred supplier
Exceptions to seeking quotations: refer Section 4 of Procurement Policy (PDF191kB).
