Quotations

A quotation is conducted in an environment where the level of risk associated with the purchase is low or very low, and valued at under $250,000.

Minor Quotation

Minor quotations can be acquired without the use of a Quotation Form. They can be obtained by a number of methods including telephone, fax, email, mail or over the counter.

A minimum of one verbal quote is needed for amounts from $0 to $2,000.

Two verbal quotes are required for amounts from $2,001 to $5,000.

Two written quotes are required for amounts between $5,001 and $30,000 and these quotes are to be recorded and placed on the relevant file.

Major Quotation

The Request for Quotation form is to be used for this category, which requires a minimum of three written quotations.

This category covers purchases between $30,001 and $250,000 and all quotations will be issued and received by the Procurement Officer.

A Major Quotation received after the advertised closing time shall not be considered unless there exists clear evidence that the Quotation was posted or transmitted before the closing time.

To download advertised major quotations see list above under 'Current Quotes and Tenders'.

Tenders

The City is required to undertake certain statutory procedures when a purchase is expected to be $250,000 or more. For high-risk purchases, less than $250,000, Council will undertake a more stringent assessment. These procedures ensure that an open, fair and competitive process is available to those wishing to supply the goods or services to the City. When performed effectively, the process will result in the City receiving the best value for money for the purchase of significant goods and services (this does not always mean the cheapest).

All or any tenders are not necessarily accepted. Canvassing of elected members, employees of the City of Albany or any member of a selection panel will disqualify the tenderer. Tenders will not be accepted via fax.

A Tender received after the advertised closing time shall not be considered unless there exists clear evidence that the submission was posted or transmitted before the closing time.
