Moreton Bay Regional Council Legal Services

The Commission attempts to acquire goods and services by soliciting bids on VendorPanel or tenders on LG Tenderbox. The board purchases a variety of goods, services and contracts in various fields, including building materials, vehicles, roads, trails, factories and equipment, office furniture and equipment, recreational and community facilities, professional services, utilities and more. Links to these platforms are available on the Supplier Portal on the Commission`s website. This video explains what you need to know about doing business with us, including the legal requirements under which advice must operate, how the board purchases goods and services, and what you need to do to register as a potential supplier or contractor. I`ll also give some tips you should keep in mind when applying for municipal contracts. Moreton Bay Regional Council works with hundreds of suppliers, contractors and outside companies each year. In this presentation, you will learn about the process followed by the Council to ensure that all activities produce the best results for the community. Collaboration between the real estate and rating and ICT teams allowed them to accelerate the creation of a fully automated online process with integration between multiple systems. By leveraging OpenForms, now from Granicus, the ICT team simplified the customer experience by integrating across multiple systems, including MBRC`s financial systems and the external social security and payment services system operated by Australian agency Centrelink. Because ICT was able to configure a large part of the customer journey without coding, the entire solution was built, tested and deployed in less than a week. The Commission`s procurement of goods and services is subject to various statutes, regulations, policies and guidelines.

The automated online application process has significantly reduced the impact on customer service and employees, giving them time to respond to other COVID-related requests. The streamlined process eliminated the need to manually answer thousands of phone calls, physically review and process requests using Centrelink, and respond carefully to customers. This is why our local preference policy was introduced, which means that local companies gain a competitive advantage in evaluating tenders because they are based in the region and employ local people.

All businesses outside South East Queensland are considered non-local and are not assessed under the Local Preference Policy. The council will primarily award bids and bids valued at $50,000 or less to local businesses. If local businesses cannot deliver, do not have the capacity or do not offer good value for money, contracts may be awarded to non-local companies. We understand that much of the preparation is required in a tender, so it can be disappointing not to succeed. Be sure to use our feedback service, which is available to any company that requests it after a tendering process. This is a useful process to help you understand what criteria in your submission can be improved for future calls. Applications are monitored during business hours, except holidays, and assigned to the appropriate department for review and evaluation.
