Doing business with Council

Council operates under a detailed Code of Conduct framework which governs its interactions with the community and businesses alike

Tendering and Contracts

Council encourages suitably experienced and qualified contractors to make offers through tenders, quotations and expression of interests (EOI) for planned works during each financial year.

To assist contractors, Council provides an eTendering Facility.

The eTendering Service provides a simple, economic and effective method for contractors to identify upcoming tenders, quotations and EOIs. Contractors may register their company, download a copy of the request for tender, quotations and EOI document and lodge submissions online.

Alternatively, advertisements relating to current public tenders, EOIs and certain quotations are published in the local government section of the Sydney Morning Herald on Tuesday and in the classified section of Canterbury-Bankstown's local newspaper.

City of Canterbury Bankstown's expressions of interest and tenders are in accordance with Part 7 of the Local Government (General) Regulation 2005, tenders are to be called where it is anticipated that expenditure will be greater than $250,000 (including GST) over the life of the contract.

Council publishes all expressions of interest (EOI) and open tenders on the NSW eTendering website. Current EOI and open tender documents can be obtained by clicking the button below.
