PROPOSAL TO IMPLEMENT A REGIONAL PRICE PREFERENCE POLICY

Published: Wednesday, 16 October 2019 at 12:00:00 AM

The Local Government (Functions and General) Regulations 1996 allow for non-metropolitan local governments to offer a price preference to local and regional suppliers when assessing quotations or tenders for goods and/or services. 

The intent of providing a price preference consideration to local and regional suppliers is to stimulate economic activity and growth within the region by ensuring that that local businesses are able to remain competitive when supplying goods or services.

The regions to which the policy relates are:

Region 1 - defined as a business or industry located within the district of the Shire of Dowerin; and

Region 2 - defined as a business or industry located within the districts of the Shire of Cunderdin, Shire of Goomalling, Shire of Koorda, Shire of Wongan-Ballidu and Shire of Wyalkatchem.

A copy of the proposed Policy is available Here.

Submissions are invited on the proposed policy and are to be made in writing addressed to the Chief Executive Officer and can be emailed to dowshire@dowerin.wa.gov.au (preferred), posted to 13 Cottrell St, Dowerin WA 6461 or hand delivered to the Administration Office during normal business hours. Submissions are to be received by no later than 4.00pm (WST) on Thursday 14 November 2019. Late submissions will not be considered.
