Government procurement involves guidelines and procedures to ensure that the process is conducted in accordance with ethical, fair and transparent practices. As all local governments in the Pilbara are accountable to taxpayers, they must also ensure that their procurement processes are equitable, non-discriminatory and cost efficient. Each of the Pilbara local governments purchases a range of goods and services that are essentially similar
in nature, potentially offering opportunities to combine these procurement acrtivities under a regional model. Using economies of scale, this project seeks to engage with each of the four local governments in the region, and to leverage their combined purchasing power to deliver additional value for the region either through reduced purchase cost, reduced administrative/maintenance, and/or enhanced service delivery.
Identify services areas suitable for regional service alignment, procure and/or delivery.
