Open spaces, parks, play, sport and recreation

LGA Procurement together with LocalBuy Queensland have undertaken a tender process for provision of Open Spaces, Parks, Play, Sport & Recreation goods and services for Local Government.

In development of this market approach, LGA Procurement was keen to ensure that SA Councils were able to identify providers which would assist in meeting regional purchasing strategies. The South Australian Industry Participation Policy, established by State Government, focuses on the inclusion of an economic benefit assessment when undertaking and evaluating procurement.

Response questions were included to enable identification of a South Australian Panel of Providers, comprising companies with a SA presence – in respect of elements of manufacture; fabrication; distribution; assembly and installation.  A number of non-SA suppliers were included as it was considered that the products/services were of a nature that may be of specific interest to Councils.
