Level 2 Industry Partners are suppliers that are able to supply councils with goods /services not exceeding $150,000 and are required to summarise the company’s goods/services that could be of benefit to member councils in an Expression of Interest Form (EIF).
Only after the EIF has been reviewed and where requested by Regional Procurement the supplier will then need to:
- Submit an Industry Partner Level 2 Application Form,
- Be listed as active on the ASIC website,
- Provide details of two referees, and
- Provide evidence of currently holding insurance for Public Liability, Worker’s Compensation and Motor Vehicle (at a minimum).
Regional Procurement welcomes suppliers to express their interest in becoming a Level 2 Industry Partner. This program offers an informal agreement between Regional Procurement, participating councils and the supplier organisation and entitles the supplier to have their details listed on our website.
Regional Procurement reviews all Expressions of Interest Forms received to determine the relevance of each company’s products/services to participating councils. Where the range of products/ services appears to meet a need that is not already addressed by existing contracts, the company will be provided with an application form to complete. We will then conduct an ASIC check on the current trading status of the company and contact noted referees and then, pending a satisfactory outcome of these checks, advise the company of the outcome of the application within 10 business days. Successful applicants are asked to sign a Letter of Agreement (LoA).
Regional Procurement advises that a nominal management fee is remitted by all Industry Partners for all goods/services provided to our member councils. Further details of this are shown in the Letter of Agreement.
