Can I lodge my Submission via Email?

Council does not accept submissions via email. Options for lodgement of tenders are: 
  • The electronic tender box at Tenderlink; or
  • Place hard copy tenders, quotations or Expression of Interest (EOI) in a sealed package(s) with the title and tender, quotation or EOI number, in the tender box. Lachlan Shire Council, 58-64 Molong Street, CONDOBOLIN NSW 2877

    Can I Lobby Councillors and Staff?

    No. It is not permitted and may result in disqualification from the tender process.

    Do I need an ABN?

    All individuals and organisations lodging tenders with Council for provision of materials, equipment or services must have an Australian Business Number (ABN), and must be registered for goods and services tax. All submissions must clearly state the submitter’s ABN.
    You can apply for an ABN online.

    Do I have to answer all the Questions?

    Yes you must try to answer every question. Some questions are marked mandatory.  If you do not answer those questions your tender will automatically be considered non-compliant.

    Is there an opportunity to negotiate the contract if I am awarded the tender?

    There is no opportunity to negotiate the contract after the tender has been accepted. If you wish to offer alternative terms they must be submitted in full as part of your tender. These may not be accepted.

    What is Best Value?

    Council will base procurement decisions on a principle of “value for money” rather than “lowest costs”. The organisation will also give preference to, and purchase, environmentally performing products that are cost competitive, and organisations that operate in an environmentally responsible manner.
