Vendor Panel

LGAT Procurement helps Tasmanian councils undertake best practice procurement and deliver value for money for their communities by leveraging the combined purchasing power of councils around the country whilst buying locally.
Save time, save money, reduce risk by accessing contracts managed by procurement experts.

About LGAT Procurement.

LGAT Procurement offers councils in Tasmania access to a range of goods and services panels where suppliers are prequalified after participating in a tender process. Details of the panels are available on Vendor Panel. Access to Vendor Panel is provided to councils by LGAT on request as a free member service.

For some panels, an RFQ through Vendor Panel is required (the system allows you to quickly and easily raise, evaluate and award quotes online). For others, Vendor Panel is simply a portal where councils can see information on the contract, have access to compliance information, supplier details and contacts and order direct from supplier – quoting contract details.

What are the benefits for Local Government?
