Our procurement policy

Procurement plays an important role in how we implement our strategies and our work towards delivering our vision for the city. The way we manage our expenditure and spend public money has an impact in the local economy and can affect our performance and reputation.

Our procurement policy is based on the Government Procurement Rules developed by the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment and gives consideration to the following:

  • Contributing to the achievement of Council’s strategic goals as encompassed in the five priority areas – Environment, Community, City Centre, Economy and Infrastructure Strategy.
  • Value for money.
  • Transparency and fairness, irrespective of the value of the procurement.
  • Accountability.
  • A sustainable procurement approach.
