Marketplace Registration  

Open Tenders 

Council staff have access to three purchasing lists.

Internal: Suppliers that have registered to do business with Somerset Regional Council for the supply of goods or services through the quotation and/or tender processes. These lists are managed by Council and you must be invited to join.

External: Panels created and managed by Local Buy Pty Ltd using only pre-qualified suppliers are available to Council through VendorPanel. You must tender through the Localbuy network to be invited to join these lists.

Marketplace: Designed by the creators of VendorPanel to provide a list of suppliers that may not fit into the internal or external lists. Council staff can select a category for the product they wish to purchase, receiving a list of suppliers to request quotes from. This list is Australia-wide, however Council selects local businesses that supply the required product.
