Gladstone Regional Council is hosting an information session on 9 October to promote recent Invitations to Tender for a range of Construction Trade Services panels. The intent of the information session is to ensure business owners and managers are given an opportunity to receive guidance to submit complete and conforming offers to Council for the following Register of Pre-Qualified Suppliers (RPQS)
The RPQS panels to be established are:
- RPQS 83-21 Trade Services (Building)
- RPQS 84-21 Trade Services (Concreting)
- RPQS 85-21 Trade Services (Electrical)
- RPQS 86-21 Trade Services (Plumbing)
- RPQS 87-21 Trade Services (Welding)
RPQS panels will be established to make purchases of services under $200,000 ex GST more efficient for businesses and Council, while still ensuring good governance, transparency and accountability from Council.
Council is seeking attendance from business owners and managers who deliver these services to ensure tender requirements are well understood and submitted offers are conforming.
Date: Friday, 9 October 2020
Venue: Hall A, Gladstone Entertainment Convention Centre
Must RSVP by 6 October.
This information session will provide detailed information on the tendering process and will be filmed and made available online after the session.
Council officers will be available to answer questions about the tender process and assist with lodgement enquiries. Participants will also be able to submit queries with their RSVP, which will be addressed during the session.
Council is encouraging local providers to tender their services.
