SA Councils and Subsidiaries have access to a preferred panel arrangement for the supply of Network Printers, Multi-function Devices & Managed Print Solutions through the Document Output Devices Panel.
This panel covers small, medium and large scale business needs and includes purchase of smaller printers!
With accountable and transparent contractual agreements already in place and suppliers committed to delivering services at their best price, Councils can readily approach a panel for quotations, by releasing a RFQ for your specific requirements.
There are a number of factors to consider when determining your needs, such as type (Monochrome (Mono) or Colour), monthly output (pages), print speed/noise and also can include the following:
- Fax capability (send and receive options), speed dialling and security;
- Collation unit;
- Hole punching; and
- Booklet printing.
The HofA between each Panel Member and LGA Procurement requires equipment offered under the Panel to be US EPA Energy Star® (or equivalent) compliant.
*The HofA (including agreed confidential pricing) with each Supplier is able to be viewed on VendorPanel. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for a login.
Who is a Preferred Supplier?
With 4 endorsed National suppliers on contract, Councils can be assured they are purchasing from some Australia's lead companies!
How do I obtain a quote?
Access to the panel is via VendorPanel. A factsheet has been developed to assist in the scooping of your requirements. This is intended to assist suppliers to provide the most appropriate products for your individual requirements.

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