Council procurement (purchasing) is guided by the Sound Contracting Principles set out in the Local Government Act 2009 which are:

  • Value for money
  • Open and effective competition
  • Development of competitive local business and industry
  • Environmental protection
  • Ethical behaviour and fair dealing

Council’s Procurement Policy outlines Council’s policy for the procurement of all goods, equipment and related services, construction contracts and service contracts (including maintenance).
