Doing Business with Council

Council works with hundreds of external suppliers, contractors and businesses each year.

We aim to:

  • Achieve value for money for ratepayers
  • Conduct activities in a fair and ethical manner
  • Support local business

Depending on the level of expenditure, we are required to use different methods of procurement to ensure legislative compliance. The primary methods of procurement are via a public tender process, or request for quotation.

Council is committed to ensuring high standards of probity and accountability in Council's procurement activities. Please view any of the following documents you feel may help with your understanding of Council’s business opportunities and practices:


Current Tender Opportunities

The Surf Coast Shire Council uses Tenderlink (an e-Tendering system) to manage its tenders online.

Details of current tendering opportunities are available by following this link to the Surf Coast Shire Council Tenderlink website

Council will not accept any hardcopy, emailed or faxed tender submissions.

All tender submissions must be lodged electronically through TenderLink; there is no cost to register and/or access Council’s tenders through the system. It is the sole responsibility of the tenderer to ensure that all required documents are successfully uploaded before the tender closing date and time.

Council will not accept any late tenders.
