Local Buy Government Panel Supplier

Say Goodbye to 3 Quote Tenders. Say Hello to LGAQ’s Local Buy Panels. No more need for time consuming and costly tendering processes just to get a small or medium sized idea off the ground.

Kintek’s unique partnership with Dataflex allows us to work with Local and State Government departments in Queensland in a more cost effective and agile manner. Utilising the Queensland Government owned Local Government Association of Queensland (LGAQ) Local Buy Panel system, your Government Department can buy from Kintek’s range of Mobile App and Web Development services without the need to go through the traditional Procurement and Tendering processes.

…did you know, many Local and State Government Departments are unaware they can purchase through LGAQ Local Buy Panels without tendering?

The Local Government Act 2009 gives Local Buy a statutory right to complete the public tender process, for goods and services, on behalf of Queensland’s Local Government sector. Our contracts are fully compliant with the requirements of the Act and subsequent financial regulations.


Legislation

The Local Government Act 2009 & Local Government Regulation 2012 stipulate certain requirements of councils when entering into contracts:

  • Large contracts: the need to tender when goods or services are procured for $200,000 (excluding GST) or more from a single supplier in a financial year
  • Medium contracts: the need to seek three written quotations when entering into contracts between $15,000 and $200,000 (excluding GST) from a single supplier in a financial year
  • Exception: A local government may enter into a contract without first inviting written quotes/tenders, if the contract is entered into under a Local Government Association (LGA) Arrangement – ie Local Buy panels

However, councils may stipulate lower thresholds and additional processes in regards to entering into contracts. Some councils have an internal policy which states they must seek three quotes, regardless of using Local Buy suppliers; or if the amount is above $1,000 rather than the mandated $15,000 – so they are seen to be seeking best value.

All Queensland Local Government Authorities can purchase without tendering or requesting multiple quotes, when engaging Local Buy suppliers. More information on the Local Government Act and Regulations can be found on the Local Buy website.

Please also be aware that under the Local Government Regulation 2012, all Queensland Councils are required to make public, details of all contracts awarded which have a value of $200,000 or more per financial year (ie project, name of company, value of project and how the company was awarded the work – public tender/Council panel/Local Buy supplier). Generally this information can be found on individual Council websites.
