After a rigorous assessment process, Edge Environment has been appointed as a supplier on the Local Government Procurement Panel for a term of three years. The panel allows local governments to easily, safely and efficiently procure a range of services without the costs and hassles associated with tendering.
Local Government Procurement (LGP) represents the needs of councils with suppliers as well as providing extensive procurement, tendering and contract management support. There are no joining or annual fees to utilise the contracts established by LGP. Councils may also utilise LGP to conduct tenders on their behalf, on a fee for service basis, reducing their risk and ensuring that the process follows best practice principles. The benefits for Councils are:
- Significant cost savings – if you choose to buy from LGP contracts you will not need to go to tender
- Further cost savings – as a result of the combined purchasing power of all participating councils
- Risk management – as LGP will run the tender process, all the risk involved with all aspects of probity and process will stay with LGP.
