Procurement Service

Western Australia's Local Governments outlay approximately $4 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 essential.  

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. These include areas such as civil construction, land development and heritage refurbishment.

There are many advantages to engaging WALGA’s Procurement Service:

  • Independence – no vested interest in any Local Government's procurement outcomes.
  • Expertise – specialist procurement expertise in all aspects of the process.
  • Capacity Building – improve Local Government's procurement capability through education, advice, resources and support.
  • Confidentiality – all Procurement Services work is strictly confidential.
  • Transparency - Local Governments can demonstrate transparency in procurement decision making.
