Western Australia's Local Governments buy around $1 billion worth of goods and services each year. So it’s important that they receive and deliver best value to the community. As the custodians of ratepayer funds, the need for transparency at all stages of the procurement process is important.
WALGA offers Local Governments and Associate Members high quality support, facilitation and advice at every step of the procurement process. We want Members to achieve the best possible procurement outcomes while fulfilling compliance obligations. We are committed to assisting Members to achieve best practice in all aspects of procurement, including building procurement capacity.
The Procurement Services team is experienced in working with a wide variety of Local Government staff involved in purchasing and contracting on a range of procurement projects. Regularly these include areas such as civil construction, land development and heritage refurbishment.
