How do I obtain a quote?

Before undertaking your VendorPanel Request for Quote, you are able to either prepare your own Specification or you can download the RFQ TEMPLATE as below:

Contract 16-001 - RFQ Template(1150 kb)
Contract 16-001 - RFQ Template Attachment A(21 kb) 

Simply download and complete the Template, deleting those categories not required and complete the Exel Spreadsheet to suit your requirement as Attachment A.  You then go to VendorPanel (as below) and add the two completed documents to your RFQ.

Please contact LGA Procurement via email procurement@lga.sa.gov.au to obtain a login for VendorPanel, a free probity based system used across Australia by Local Government and other organisations to seek quotations.

VendorPanel
To seek a competitive quote, just click on “Create a new RFx” – this will take you through a step-by-step request wizard, allow you to outline your requirement, attach documents and post your request electronically to the relevant suppliers.  There are short videos and FAQs in VendorPanel that will assist you in this process.

Suppliers are notified by email and submit their quotes online via their own VendorPanel account.  You can monitor supplier engagement in real time – seeing when they have read your request and when they have submitted a response.  You are unable to access the response until the Close Time for the RFx. 

VendorPanel will manage the supplier Q&As, updated and addendums and provides tools to assist in evaluation of responses and notifying suppliers of the successful RFx.  You can then download all documentation, including a final report into your council ECM. 

NOTE: When purchasing through an LGA Procurement arrangement always include the Contract Number and Short Title in all correspondence, including your purchase order. This will ensure you are covered by the contract terms and conditions and pricing agreed with preferred providers. 

Cloud Services

A number of suppliers are able to offer Cloud Services or are able to access the Federal Government Cloud Contract which is available to all Federal, State and Local Government Agencies across Australia. 

You are able to use the Panel by accessing the following link to self-register - https://ictprocurement.service-now.com/ss/portal_login.do
