Doing Business with Council

Council works with hundreds of external suppliers, contractors and businesses each year. Council is focussed on supporting our local economy and creating as many opportunities as possible for local businesses.

Find out how your business can work with us.

VendorPanel Marketplace

VendorPanel is Council’s online quoting system.  Through VendorPanel the council has access to VendorPanel Marketplace. 

VendorPanel Marketplace is an e-quoting system enabling Council employees to directly contact businesses that Council may not utilise regularly or require tenders for, but may employ from time to time.

You can register your business to receive email alerts for relevant business opportunities. VendorPanel is provided free for suppliers and is an open marketplace where suppliers administer their own accounts and are able to update business details if they change.
