Regional Price Preference Policy

Published on Tuesday, 27 September 2022 at 11:08:03 AM

A review of Council Policy 3.1 ‘Purchasing Policy’ has been undertaken by Council.
The main focus of the proposed changes are as follows:
• Simplifying the purchasing thresholds;
• Defining exclusions to the policy, such as postage and freight, to increase compliance; and
• Creation of a regional price preference component of the policy in accordance with Local Government (Functions and General) Regulations 1996 regulations 24A to 24G.
