Background Information

Council has drafted a Contract Management Policy and a Procurement Policy. Both of these policies describe the legislative framework within which the City of Canada Bay operates, the practices within Council, staff responsibilities, and expected behaviours of both Council staff and suppliers and contractors of Council.

Contract Management Policy

This policy provides guidance on the review of the City of Canada Bay’s contractors prior to any extension or renewal action, to ensure performance outcomes are achieved.

The objectives of this policy are:

  • To govern the execution and management of contracts entered into by the City of Canada Bay
  • To minimise the exposure to financial and reputational risk
  • To uphold the principles for procurement activities by Council
  • To provide clear guidelines for the contract management of contracts over $50,000 inclusive of GST.

Procurement Policy

The City of Canada Bay is striving to achieve procurement excellence. All procurement activities are conducted in accordance with relevant legislation, this policy, and Council’s Operational Management Standard for the procurement of materials, equipment, and services that it uses to deliver services to the community.

Successful procurement provides great opportunities to use the community's money wisely and to deliver the required goods and services in a sustainable way. This policy excludes the procurement/lease of land and property.

The objective of this policy is to uphold the principles for procurement activities by Council and to provide clear guidelines for the procurement of goods and services.
