Darebin City Council wants to purchase goods and services from local suppliers, social enterprise (including Kinaway Commerce Businesses and Disability Enterprises).
That is why we have developed a Local Supplier Register. When you REGISTER THROUGH THIS PORTAL, if you have a postcode in Darebin, or Melbourne’s greater North region then our Register will identify you as local.
Council’s purchasing staff will use this Register to locate local suppliers and social enterprise. Whilst we can’t guarantee you will be contacted to provide Council with a quote, if your details are registered then you give yourself every chance.
The table below outlines the information staff seek when purchasing goods and services.
Threshold Incl. of GST
>$1,000 Obtain at least one written quotation for one-off purchase.
$10,001 - $50,000
Mandatory - A minimum of one local and social business supplier must be invited, depending on availability of local suppliers.
$50,001 - $300,000
Mandatory - Inclusion of S&S objectives.
A public tender process is required for goods, services or works.
You will only be contacted for purchases that are less than $300,000 (ie not a public tender).
When you have completed the registration form, you will be prompted to create ‘subscription’ alerts by choosing the goods and services categories that relate to your business. You only need to do this if you would like to receive public tender (ie purchases >$300,000) notifications.
