Registers of Pre-qualified suppliers (panels)

For a range of operational reasons, considered in the context of the Local Government Regulation, Council may establish a number of Registers (panels) of Pre-qualified Suppliers via tender initially.

Invitations will be issued to those suppliers on the approved panel when the goods and services are required. This will provide the opportunity for Council to then provide greater detail about the specific details of the goods, services or work required.

Council uses Vendorpanel to facilitate the issuing of quotes to the Registers and also make sure that the appropriate securities are in place prior to the closing time.

Registers of Pre-qualified suppliers operate for several years with new suppliers only allowed to apply to be on a Register when it is advertised. For most Registers Council advertises for additional suppliers several times per year.

Registers of Pre-qualified Suppliers, Preferred Suppliers and Approved Contractor Lists

Under the Local Government Regulation, Council is permitted to create the following:

• Registers of Pre-qualified Suppliers or panels (LGR s232)
• Preferred Supplier Arrangements (LGR s233)
• Approved Contractor Lists (LGR s231)

The following link provides the legislative details for the above.
