Quotations for goods and services
The City obtains quotations for purchases between $5,000 and $250,000.
Purchases below $5,000 are obtained via direct purchase.
The City 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 City. It is:
- easy to set up
- alerts you to new quotation requests
- provides you with an opportunity to make the City aware of the goods, services and expertise you can offer.
In the VendorPanel system, the City has set up supplier lists for various goods and services it requires.
- Company name.
- Contact name.
- Email address.
- Description of services/products offered.
Should the City have a supplier list that matches your profile, you will receive an invitation to register via VendorPanel. Once you have accepted that invitation and created your company profile you will be ready to receive requests from the City and submit quotations back to the City.
