Preferred Suppliers: Shorter Tenders, Less Risk
Public procurement is such an important part of any council’s operations. Regardless of who we are, where we live, and what we do, public procurement concerns and affects us all. Tendering is an effective way to ensure the Government and taxpayers get value for money.
But really, do you have time or want to put yourself at risk by issuing a tender when you don’t have to?
LGA of South Australia creates Preferred Supplier program
This is why the LGA of South Australia has created the Preferred Supplier program, The platform is popular with South Australian councils because it facilitates selection from a validated group of prequalified suppliers. Using prequalified suppliers means you can get a product quicker, and with less risk. What’s even better, this method is much easier than if you were to tender directly from an un-prequalified supplier.
