In accordance with Section 27 of the Government Information (Public Access) Act 2009 (GIPA), Council is required to maintain a register that records information about each government contract which has (or is likely to have) a value of $150,000 or more.
This requirement however, does not apply to contracts entered into by Councils before commencement of the GIPA Act on 1 July 2010. Alternatively, Council may make some of this prior information proactively available within the contracts register.
You can request information on any contract entered into prior to this date by contacting the Right to Information Officer.
Under Section 35 (2)(b) of the Act, Councils are not required to publish their contracts register on the e-tenders website, making this page the centralised location for all current contracts entered into by Council since 1 July 2010.
Contracts that must be included in the government contracts register are those:
Different classes of contracts
The Act provides for three different classes of contracts, each with different information disclosure requirements.
Class 1 contracts
Class 1 contracts are those that have, or are likely to have, a value of $150,000
Class 2 contracts
Class 2 contracts are class 1 contracts where:
Class 3 contracts
If a class 2 contract has a value, or likely value of more than $5 million, it becomes a class 3 contract. Agencies must publish a copy of a class 3 contract on the register of government contracts.
