Sound tendering practices are essential to creating an effective and efficient organisation.
Procurement is an important council function. Local councils spend significant amounts of public money on projects and services every year. Implementing effective and lawful procurement strategies and processes will increase the efficiency of your organisation time.
We can review and recommend a tendering or quotation process that is tailored to your strategic objectives and complies with your legislative requirements. We also understand the practicalities of preparing tender documentation and know the importance of getting the framework right up front.
