Procurement and Supplier Resources

The City of Busselton strives to achieve best value for money in its procurement and to ensure that its purchasing activities are open, transparent, and consistent with all regulatory requirements.

The principle of value for money does not mean that the City will automatically select goods and services with the lowest price. In determining best value for money the City will balance all relevant factors including initial cost, whole of life costs, quality, reliability and timeliness.

Council officers identify the appropriate method to procure goods, services or works needed in accordance with Council policies and procedures.
