Quotations and Tenders

Quotations and Tenders

Richmond Valley Council has joined one of Australasia’s largest procurement communities, TenderLink, because we believe this system gives us better access to tenderers, ensuring Council is able to purchases goods and services in the most cost effective way possible.

Our Procurement officers will use this portal to advertise tenders, quotations, expressions of interest, and other purchasing requirements to the market and to manage the procurement process through to contract award stage. We welcome current and potential suppliers of goods and services to register on this portal. There is no charge for registration. To register, simply click on this link, then on the registration tab in the menu bar.

Alternatively, visit https://www.tenderlink.com/richmondvalley/

Once are registered with us, you will be automatically notified of tender opportunities and will have online access to all the details and status of tenders. You will be able to access this portal to view any associated documentation, participate in Q&A forums and, where required, submit electronic bid responses through our secure, e-tender box facility.

Looking forward to doing business with you in the future!


Membership on Richmond Valley Council’s Panel of Contractors

Richmond Valley Council builds and maintains roads, sewer and water facilities, storm water drainage systems, parks and playgrounds, and community buildings such as libraries, community centres, depots and administration centres. To assist with this program of works, RVC is seeking tenders from suitably qualified, licensed and experienced contractors for inclusion on a Panel of Contractors for various trade categories up to $149,999 (GST incl). Occasionally, jobs of a specialised nature will be required. In such cases, RVC reserves the right to source suppliers outside of the pre-qualified contractors register. Where a project involves expenditure over $149,999 (GST incl), separate open tenders will be advertised. Contractors are advised that in general, jobs will be allocated to those on the panel who offer best practice in:

  • Value for money
  • Quality of work
  • Reliability of service and associated administration
  • WHS management policy and associated procedures
  • Availability
  • Trade suitability
  • Local development/value adding (including local and Aboriginal employment)
  • Performance

Successful appointment to the Panel of Contractors carries no guarantee in relation to the quantity, regularity and type of work assigned to the contractor.

Note: RVC reserves the right to use the panel in such a way that no one contractor is deemed the ‘preferred’ contractor.

Existing contracts with RVC will continue until expiry. However, such contractors should still apply for prequalification. Contractors are sought in the following categories:
