Conditions of offer and conditions of contract

The City utilises the following general conditions of contract for the various types of procurement:

City policies and procedures

The City requires suppliers to comply with relevant policies and procedures as detailed in the tender documentation, these may include:

Sun protection procedure (PDF 107kb)

Principal controlled contract works insurance

Contractors Liability Insurance (PDF 1.1mb)

Contractors All Risks Insurance (PDF 1.2mb)

Insurance Claim Advice Form (PDF 53kb)

Evaluation of tenders

Details of the evaluation process and criteria will be documented in the tender documentation. Once specified, the evaluation criteria and process must be followed.

The tender documentation is generally constructed to enable offers to be submitted in two distinct and separate files:

  • No-pricing schedules (containing information to evaluate gates 1 and 2)
  • Pricing schedules (containing the information to evaluate gate 3).

The City follows a three gate evaluation process for the evaluation of tenders.

Gate 1: Mandatory criteria

These are formed, in terms of minimum specified requirements, to allow the evaluation team to filter out those submissions that do not conform to the mandatory requirements. Non-conforming offers (which don’t meet the mandatory criteria requirements) will not be further evaluated by the evaluation team as part of the evaluation process.

Gate 2: Scoring criteria

These are set to allow the evaluation team to assign a relative score out of 10 for each evaluated supplier offer, for each criterion set. Each scoring criterion also has a percentage weighting allocated to it to represent its relative importance and worth in the selection process. Scoring criteria focus on evaluating and determining whether the particular suppliers have the required capability to provide the required services, goods, ICT or works for the City. Only those offers who score sufficiently at this stage will move through to gate 3.

Gate 3: Value for money

Only those submissions who move through from gate 2 will then be looked at in order to determine the best value pricing submissions received, including any negotiations.

The Chief Procurement Officer may approve the utilisation of an alternate tender evaluation methodology for a specific procurement where it is considered advantageous to do so.

Supplier briefings

At the discretion of the Chief Procurement Officer, where it is believed to be advantageous to the success of the procurement initiative and included in the tender documentation, supplier briefings may be held as part of the tender process and will include all suppliers wishing to respond to a tender. The purpose of the supplier briefing is to present to potential suppliers information about the specifications, conditions of tendering and conditions of contracts and then provide the opportunity for attendees to ask further questions of clarification, which will be documented along with the responses and issued as an addendum, to the tender.

Changes to tenders

These will be done by way of on addendum. All addendum will be forwarded to all tenderers by way of LGTenderbox. Where appropriate, the tender period may be extended when an addendum is issued at the discretion of the Chief Procurement Officer. All queries should be addressed only to the Contact Officer listed within the tender documentation.

Action by the City after receiving tenders

After the close of the tender date, the City may without limitation to any other action open to it:

Request clarifications

If so requested by City, the tenderer must submit by the date and time specified information in clarification regarding their tender submission. Failure to provide the requested information may result in the tender being deemed non-conforming and it will not be evaluated further.

Request changes to tenders

Section 228(7) of the Local Government Regulation provides that the City may invite all tenderers who submitted a tender to change their tenders where there is a change in the tender. This is during the period of the close of tender but before any tender is recommended for acceptance. Should the change have resulted in alternative suppliers submitting an offer, consideration will be given to withdrawing the tender and readvertising. The Local Government Regulation require all changes to tenders under Section 228(7) be listed in the City's Annual Report.

Enter into post tender negotiations

The City may negotiate with suppliers after the close of tenders when it has expressly reserved the right in the conditions of the tender. All suppliers who proceed to gate 3 will be invited to enter into negotiations. The commencement of negotiations with one or more supplier is not an indication that a particular supplier's response has been unsuccessful or successful. All negotiations will be handled with the utmost probity and the equality of opportunity for the suppliers in gate 3 will be maintained throughout the negotiations.

As Constructed Data

The format required for As Constructed Data to be submitted to the City can be found via the As Constructed Data Standards and Guidelines page.
