Our e-tendering web portal is Tenderlink
We undertake the majority of our tendering via e-tendering software. This has been designed to improve the speed, efficiency, transparency and fairness of the tender process.
We have a formal tendering policy that governs the way we formally tender for goods and services. In addition to the internal Tendering Policy, all tendering in NSW Local Government is governed by the NSW Local Government Act 1993, Section 55 and the NSW Local Government (General) Regulation 2005, Part 7.
Advertising our tenders
All new tenders are advertised in a local newspaper as well as a Sydney metropolitan newspaper. A notice of each tender is also placed on the Tenderlink website. Companies registering with Tenderlink can do so free of charge providing they register through the GTCC portal. Tender documents will not be issued from the Tenderlink site, it is only used for notification and advertising purposes.
When a new tender is issued the following link to the APET360 Pro webpage will be included with the tender advertisement and will be shown on our website along with general information regarding each tender.
