Logan City Council - Engaging Local Suppliers

Logan City Council introduced a new e-Procurement process in July 2016, designed to boost the local economy and drive business to local suppliers.

VendorPanel Marketplace will be used by Council employees when there is no preferred or pre-qualified supplier arrangement in place and where the intended expenditure is below $220,000 (inclusive of GST). At the heart of this solution, Logan City Council is trying to make it easier to engage with local suppliers and the open market, giving small to medium enterprises better access to Council opportunities and increase governance and transparency in the quotation process.

This new e-Procurement system is an opportunity for businesses in the open market to have their goods and services seen by Council, it’s free for suppliers to register and is easy to use.

Suppliers can register by visiting the VendorPanel Marketplace website and following the simple 5 step process. 

For more information on the VendorPanel Marketplace system please contact the Logan City Council Corporate Procurement Program on 07 3412 5676 or the VendorPanel support team on 03 9095 6181. - helping local businesses find local staff is a free jobs site and resource hub, connecting local employers to local jobseekers in the City of Logan.

The site features available jobs in the City of Logan and immediate surrounds across a wide range of sectors, and across all suburbs. It lets Logan-based employers list vacant positions for free, with jobseekers able to search the site or follow job listings on Facebook to see new jobs as they’re advertised—or have alerts delivered directly to their inbox. 

The website aims to make things easier for employers in the city to source skills and talent in the community and reap the benefits of employing local, including lower turnover costs, higher reliability and simplifying the recruitment process.
