Tendering is a formal process for seeking offers for the supply of goods or services and the disposal of property whereby an invitation is extended and offers are made and considered, according to a set of pre-determined assessment criteria, prior to the creation of a contract for the supply of the goods or services.
The legislative requirements for tendering by NSW local and county councils are prescribed by section 55 of the Local Government Act 1993 and by the Local Government (General) Regulation 2005 (Part 7). However, other legislations are also relevant to council operations and activities involved in tendering, procurement and contracts. These include NSW Government Code of Practice and NSW Code of Tendering for the Construction Industry.
Brewarrina Shire Council periodically runs tenders when necessary. All tenders are advertised in the Brewarrina News, regional newspapers and here on the site.
Quotations shall be lodged in a sealed envelope and clearly endorsed TENDER BOX - Name of Tender - CONTRACT NO. xx/xx (if applicable) and placed in the Tender Box located in the foyer of Council's Administration Building, 57 Bathurst St, Brewarrina, NSW 2839 or mailed to PO Box 125, Brewarrina, NSW, 2839 or through Council's e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
