Contractor Information

The Council is committed to smart procurement that delivers better public services and provides Value for Money to the ratepayers of South Taranaki District.

Local Suppliers
The Council will seek to promote the South Taranaki economy by providing full and fair opportunity to compete for Council business. This will be achieved by:
• Ensuring local suppliers are included within invitations to tender and quote wherever practicable
• Publically advertising tender opportunities when appropriate
• Considering potential commercial and practical advantages in purchasing locally produced goods and services
• Considering local economic implications when planning major procurement activities and packaging work for contracts

Please note: Only ‘Pre-Qualified Contractors’ will be invited to quote/tender for Council work. Selected Council tenders will be advertised through Tenderlink. Once a business has been registered as a pre-qualified contractor it will automatically be added to the Tenderlink mailing list.

Becoming a Pre-Qualified Contractor
All our contractors (including contractors' sub-contractors) are required to go through an approval process to evaluate their health and safety management system and pre-qualifications before they can tender or be considered for work.
