VendorPanel provides councils with access to LGA verified, preapproved suppliers who have all undertaken rigourous open tender processes. Using accessing managed contracts through VendorPanel is free and represents value compared to tendering for individual projects.

VendorPanel benefits include:

  • Speed: suppliers have already been through formal engagement/tender process
  • Value: contractors do not need to submit tenders for specific projects, realising savings that can be passed on to councils
  • Risk management: VendorPanel meets probity requirements and provides users with reporting and audit trails
  • Results: The LGA actively reviews performance and intervenes/removes suppliers where necessary
