Contracts Register

Cobar Shire Council's Contracts Register contains a summary of current contracts between Cobar Shire Council and private sector contractors.

In accordance with Section 27 of the Government Information (Public Access ) Act 2009 (GIPA), Council is required to maintain a register that records information about contracts entered into with the private sector bodies which have (or are likely to have) a value of $150,000 or more.

This requirement however, does not apply to contracts entered into by Councils before commencement of the GIPA Act on 1 July 2010.

The Act provides for three different classes of contracts, each with different information disclosure requirements.

Class 1 – Contracts that have, or are likely to have a value of $150,000 or more.

Class 2 – Are class 1 contracts where:

  • There has not been a public tender process and the terms and conditions of the contract have been negotiated directly with the contractor, or
  • The contract went to tender (public or not) but the terms and conditions have been substantially negotiated with the contractor.
  • The obligation is for one or more parties to maintain or operate the infrastructure or asset
  • Could continue for 10 years or more, and the contract involves a privately financed project or the exchange of significant assets.

Class 3 – If a class 2 has a value or likely to have a value of more than $5 million, it becomes a class 3 contract. Agencies must publish a copy of class 3 contract on the register of government contracts.
