Moree residents are invited to provide feedback on Moree Plains Shire Council's new draft procurement policy which is currently on public exhibition.
The current procurement and local supplier preference policies have been combined into the one draft policy, following extensive reviews of the policy which was requested by council.
The policies were extensively workshopped and recommendations from this workshop have been incorporated into the draft policy.
The procurement policy is designed to ensure that all expenditure of public funds on the purchase of goods and services results in the best possible value for Moree Plains Shire Council and the community.
At its meeting on Thursday, June 27, council resolved to place the draft procurement policy on public exhibition for a period of 28 days.
A hard copy of the policy is available from council's customer service centres in Moree and Mungindi and the Moree Community Library.
Feedback and comments are welcomed by Sunday, August 11 and can be submitted to the general manager, Moree Plains Shire Council, PO Box 420, Moree NSW 2400. Comments can also be submitted to council by email to email@example.com.
Further enquiries in relation to this policy should be directed to council's procurement officer on (02) 6757 3222.
