New procurement policy implements ‘Buy Ipswich’ approach

Ipswich City Council is now making sure that more local businesses are contracted to help build our great city, under a revised Procurement Policy.

I believe that locals should be given top priority so that we can not only keep your rates circulating throughout our community but so that social and economic benefits are brought to Ipswich; this entails more employment opportunities, acquired skills, education and business development.

The new ‘Buy Ipswich’ initiative was passed by all councillors on the 17th June and will include the following principles, from 1st July 2020.

  • where quotes are sought for all contracts with an expected value less than $50,000, only seek quotes from local businesses in the first instance (where such are assessed to be reasonably capable of supplying council’s needs of value for money), and
  • where quotes are sought for all contracts with an expected value less than $200,000, provide a 20 per cent local content preferential weighting to the scoring evaluation advertised by council, or
  • where quotes are sought for all contracts with an expected value greater than $200,000, provide a 15 per cent Local Economy Support preferential weighting to the scoring evaluation advertised by council.
