Monthly Procurement Transparency
To better achieve greater transparency in procurement and contribute to rebuilding of trust with the Ipswich community, Ipswich City Council Procurement Policy was amended at the end of July 2020 to including the following ongoing requirements:
Council will publish basic contract details for all awarded contracts and procurements over $10,000 (excluding GST).
Basic contract and procurement details will include:
- a description of the purpose and goods or services procured
- contract or arrangement number
- date of award
- commencement and end dates
- value of the contract, standing offering arrangement or purchase
- name and address including postcode of the awarded supplier.
In addition to its legislative obligation under section 237 of the Local Government Regulation 2012 to publish the awarded supplier, value and purpose of contractual arrangements worth $200,000 (excluding GST) or more on Council’s website, Council will also publish the details on:
- suppliers who tendered a response.
The below datasets are the first of ongoing monthly data uploads to publish that information. Data will be accumulate of a monthly basis as a single data source for members of the public to follow the contracts that council enter into over time.
Data is shown for the estimated full value of the life of the contract in the year of commencement only. Multi year agreements do not show expenditure in the subsequent years of the agreement. As such the data at times has peaks and troughs inline with the execution of multi year agreements.
Whilst every effort has been taken to ensure that data published captures the basic contract details of all contracts and procurements and contract over $10,000 (excluding GST) no warranty, express or implied, is made regarding the accuracy, adequacy, reliability, availability, usefulness or completeness of any data provided . The data is provided on an “as is” basis. Data is added and changed periodically and data may become out of date quickly. To the full extent permitted by law, Council excludes all liability for any loss or damage howsoever arising as a result of any reliance on the accuracy of the data.
