Tender and Procurement Information
Logan City Council's tender process plays an important role in the economic development of the City of Logan.
Under the Local Government Act, Council is required to put contracts worth more than $220,000 out to tender. However, because of its commitment to open and effective competition, it will regularly call for tenders on projects of lesser value, to ensure the best contractor is sourced, and provide new opportunities for suppliers.
Council has a policy to use suppliers based in Logan City wherever possible, and is a keen supporter of economic development in the city.
More information on Council’s tender process is available on the website.
Current tenders are available via the Local Government Tenderbox portal.
