Assessment of procurement opportunities

Coonamble Shire Council’s procurement is guided by several policies, including the Local Preference Purchasing Policy and the Sustainable Procurement and Contracts Policy.

Council recognises that overall value for money is about the broader economic benefits to the entire Local Government Area and not just lowest price.

The impact of these policies on suppliers is that the quoted net price (before GST) of suppliers from the Coonamble Local Government Area will be reduced by 10% for assessment purposes. Where a non-local supplier sources goods or services from within Coonamble Local Government Area, the quoted net price (before GST) of that component of work will also be reduced by 10% for assessment purposes, up to a maximum of $15,000—provided it comprises at least a quarter (25%) of the total net price. 

Non-local suppliers are thus encouraged to advise Council of the net value of goods and services sourced from within the Coonamble Local Government Area in order for the discounted assessable price weighting to be applied (where it comprises at least 25% of the total net price).
