Quotes & Tenders

VendorPanel

Swan Hill Rural City Council uses VendorPanel Marketplace to manage all sourcing. This simplifies the procurement process and increase opportunities for local suppliers by making it easier for Council staff to invite them to quote and/or tender.

Next steps

  • Register via the VendorPanel Marketplace
  • It’s FREE and only takes a couple of minutes
  • Once you have registered you will be able to add colleagues to your company profile.
  • You and your colleagues must be registered to be invited to respond to new projects and opportunities and will then be able to submit quotes and proposals

Things to note

  • If you are an existing VendorPanel registered Supplier, you still need to register in the Marketplace to get these opportunities.  It’s easy and will be linked to your existing profile by using the same account details (email and password) to request an invitation to register into Marketplace.
  • If you have registered with our compliance platform Rapid Global, you will still need to register on VendorPanel Marketplace to ensure Council includes you when sourcing products and services.

If you have any questions on the process please contact Council’s Procurement and Properties unit procurement@swanhill.vic.gov.au or for any VendorPanel platform related issues, please contact VendorPanel Support via email support@vendorpanel.com.au or call 03 9095 6181.

Every year Council procures a variety of goods and services. Some goods and services are procured through publicly-advertised:

  • Tenders *
  • Request for Quotes (RFQ)
  • Request for Submissions (RFS)
  • Expression of interest (EOI)

* Tenders are publicly advertised for 28 days.

Each tender or submission must address the selection criteria and have all relevant sections completed. Council invites suppliers to provide additional documentation such as their business profile to help support their tender.
