Preferred Supplier Program

WALGA has undertaken a revitalisation and restructure of its Preferred Supplier Program. Changes have been made to modernise the Preferred Supplier contracts, recognising the need to provide greater agility, ease of access, and broader market reach.


More frequent tendering
WALGA Panels are open for Tender at regular intervals to facilitate contemporary and relevant panels that are current to local economic activity and meet the supply and demand requirements of WALGA Members.

Supplier Value
A greater focus is placed on supplier value to the Local Government sector through supply rates and price methodology.

Simplified Contract Terms
WALGA has undertaken a legal review and redrafting of its Panel Contract Terms and Conditions. The contract has been simplified to focus on the core elements of the Preferred Supplier relationship and deliver a more equitable framework.

A new set of General Procurement Conditions has been drafted with the intent that WALGA Members can issue a purchase order against simplified terms for a significant volume of their Preferred Supplier transactions. Where there is a need for departures, additional annexures and complex contracting options have been retained.

Consolidation of Panels and Reviewed Services Scope
WALGA has reduced the number of Preferred Supplier Panels from 38 to 11+. The subcategories have been reclassified and consolidated for ease of access and to reduce ambiguity about which Contract should be selected in a quotation environment.

The scope of services for each category have been reviewed and reformatted to provide clarity and to capture minimal technical standards at a prequalification level.

Rolling Contract Terms
The introduction of rolling two year Contract terms following the initial Tender for prequalification has been introduced. A simplified process for supplier review and due diligence will be undertaken at the end of each Contract term.

WALGA has a Commercial Management team that has an increased focus on Member and supplier engagement with Local Government buyers.
