Townsville City Council undertakes open public tendering throughout the year for the purchase of goods and services. The information provided below aims to provide suppliers with advance notice of upcoming opportunities that Council has scheduled to release.

All care is taken in the preparation of this information, however Council may at its discretion and without issuing notice choose to delay, bring forward or remove the release of any tender listed.

Townsville e-Tendering System - VendorPanel

Council issues public tenders through an electronic system, VendorPanel, which enables you to view current tenders and freely download associated documents.

You will be required to register your details before you can browse current tenders, download tender documents, and make a submission. This is required in order for Council to contact suppliers about changes to tenders and quotations, should the need arise. Registration is also required in order to upload a tender response.

Prospective suppliers are encouraged to register on VendorPanel early to ensure that they are made aware and can access tender opportunities immediately upon release.

Council issues invitations for tenders in line with the requirements of the Local Government Regulation 2012 (Qld). Tenders will remain open for a period of at least 21 days and are accompanied by Conditions of Tendering available for download with each tender on VendorPanel.

VendorPanel have available video tutorials if you require assistance in registering your business.
