Local Buy helps alleviate the need for open market tenders by managing the procurement compliance burden on behalf of all Local Government agencies.
All Local Buy arrangements are compliant with the Local Government Regulations 2012 and Local Government Act 2009 and provide Local Government entities with the assurance that all suppliers are vetted and compliant based on a comprehensive tender, evaluation and approval process.
Purchasing through a Local Buy prequalified supply arrangement negates the need for Councils to go through the formal tender process. There is also no financial minimum or maximum spend applicable within the arrangements
Our Local Buy Contracts and Suppliers list is updated every fortnight.
Pipes, Pipe Relining, Pumps, Water Meters, Pre-cast Concrete & Fibre Reinforced Products| BUS 256-0416
The BUS256 arrangement provides Queensland councils and approved purchasers with access to 28 pre-qualified industry suppliers with the capacity to deliver products across the State.
The arrangement provides a streamlined procurement process, allowing purchasers to obtain competitive pricing from competent, reliable suppliers through a select Request for Quote rather than an open tender for engagement of any value (including over $200k), resulting in significant time and cost savings.
Councils are assured of compliance with their legislated responsibilities, even for multiple purchasers from different council areas with the one supplier.
This is highly relevant to products such as these that could be purchased by a variety of different depots.
