About the Tender Process

Council seeks tender submissions for various activities to achieve the best cost/value ratio per dollar spent for our rate payers. In doing so Council will give fair and equitable consideration to all prospective suppliers wishing to do business with Council.

To assess best value, all price and non-price factors that are significant to the specific procurement activity need to be considered. These may include but are not limited to the following:

  • Price;
  • Performance;
  • Technical expertise;
  • Quality;
  • Financial stability;
  • Timeliness;
  • Compliance; and
  • Local Factors.

Within the tender process, it is Council’s preference to assess best value through the use of a tender evaluation team combined with a weighted scored assessment criteria.

Council tenders are advertised on our website and in the NT News (usually on a Thursday) and via other methods, as appropriate, with successful tenderer's published online.

Tenders must be lodged electronically through the Electronic Tender Portal and must be received in the electronic tender box prior to the prescribed closing time.
