Tenders, Quotations and Expressions of Interest

Tenders

Request for Tenders are advertised on Council's website and social media pages, by public notice in Council reception, as well as in the Armidale Express by Council, and Sydney Morning Herald by Tenderlink.

Full information and documentation in relation to requests for tender are available on Tenderlink, Council’s online tendering system. This is a free service for potential suppliers.

Potential suppliers can register to receive emails from Tenderlink about procurement opportunities from a variety of organisations, or potential suppliers can search for council’s specific requests for tenders using the unique Tenderlink number for each of council’s requests for tender.

Request for tender documentation is available for download at Tenderlink.

All questions during the ‘out to tender’ phase are asked by suppliers and answered by Council through the Tenderlink system.

Tenders are submitted by potential suppliers by upload to Tenderlink.

Each request for tender will have a Council Officer nominated as a primary contact for all enquiries after the tender has closed.

Please note: The canvassing of Councillors or Council staff in relation to requests for tender will result in automatic disqualification.

Local Suppliers, Contractors and Tradespeople

Council is committed to supporting local suppliers in its procurement dealings as much as possible, where this does not conflict with probity principles and the procurement activities achieve a best value for money outcome for the Uralla Shire community.

To give local suppliers a full, fair and reasonable opportunity to supply for and work with Council, Council maintains a register of local tradespeople, contractors and suppliers who are notified regarding upcoming work, requests for quotes, or expressions of interest as these instances arise.

Any local tradesperson, builder or contractor who wishes to register to work with Council, please email council@uralla.nsw.gov.au with the following information to be included on the register.

  • Contractor details;
  • Licences;
  • Insurances;
  • Hourly rates; and
  • A brief statement of services provided, including your location and serviced areas.
