In considering submissions, Council will act ethically and fairly and will fully comply with the law.
Council has recently reviewed the Procurement Policy and Procedures. In selecting suppliers of goods and services, Council will consider the following:
- Any contribution to the local economy
- The creation of jobs and environmental sustainability
- Fair and competitive pricing
While price is always important, the consideration of all of these factors under a Best Value assessment means that the lowest monetary offer may not always be accepted.
Frankston City Council has elected to use an electronic system to:
- Register and manage its 'Requests for Tender' (RFT)
- Expressions of Interest (EOI)
- Some Requests for Quotation (RFQ).
Note: Submissions cannot be accessed and reviewed before the closing date and time under any circumstances.
Councils RFT, EOI and RFQ documents are free to view and download.
To apply for any of the Tenders listed, it’s important to register your details.
Frankston City Council use general conditions of contract for the supply of goods and services. The RFT, EOI and RFQ will either include a copy of the terms and conditions or clearly state the Standard General Conditions of Contract.
Email tenders as per detailed in Part A of tender documentation. Faxed or hard printed copies submitted to Council officers or Council sites will not be accepted.
