Our managed contracts are available via VendorPanel – a free to use, online portal that meets probity requirements and provides users with reporting and audit trails.

South Australian councils and subsidiaries are not required to release a public tender when choosing to utilise a LGA Procurement Preferred Supplier arrangement – no matter the value of the purchase!

This is because LGA Procurement has already undertaken a rigorous open tender process that satisfies probity requirements (with particular reference to the Local Government and ICAC Acts) and achieves best value for councils.
