Cobar Shire Council has a range of projects which businesses can submit tenders for.
All tenderers must comply with the NSW Government Code of Practice for the Construction Industry.
Tender documents may be obtained by visiting www.tenderlink.com/cobar or www.vendorpanel.com.au/cobar/tenders
The lowest or any tender will not necessarily be accepted and the canvassing of any Councillors will automatically disqualify the tenderer.
The Statement of Business Ethics is a means of providing guidance regarding the standards of ethical behaviour that organisations, service providers, small businesses and individuals can expect from Councillors and members of staff, and that are expected of them, in their dealings with Council.
Cobar Shire Council is committed to providing best value in the services it provides to the community. An important element in achieving this is the responsible procurement of goods, services or works.
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
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.
