Quotations for goods and services

The Shire obtains quotations for purchases between $3,000 and $150,000.

Purchases below $3,000 are obtained via direct purchase.

The Shire uses VendorPanel to simplify the way it sends and receives quotations to and from suppliers. VendorPanel is a web-based eProcurement system used by hundreds of organisations to increase transparency and compliance in quote-based purchasing from approved suppliers.

VendorPanel gives suppliers an easy and consistent way to hear about opportunities from the Shire. It is:

  • easy to set up;
  • alerts you to new quotation requests;
  • provides you with an opportunity to make the Shire aware of the goods, services and expertise you can offer.

In the VendorPanel system, the Shire has set up supplier lists for various goods and services it requires.
