Supplier Onboarding, Verification & Data Management

To improve our internal control processes, Council have introduced a new system for the set-up and ongoing management of supplier data. All suppliers of goods & services are required to provide their information to us via Eftsure™, an independent verification system designed to validate the integrity of online transactions and supplier data. The threat of cyber fraud is a risk Council takes very seriously. This type of fraud can include business email phishing scams, or payment data files being altered fraudulently. By verifying our supplier data through Eftsure™, we can ensure that the payments made by Council are processed accurately, with the funds going where they are intended. As part of the onboarding process, you will be asked to verify your details, including your bank account information. If you have any enquiries or concerns regarding your supplier onboarding with Council, please call the Accounts Payable Team on (02) 4221 6111


Tenders and Quotation Notifications

Suppliers who wish to be notified of the release of Council tenders should register on our Tenderlink portal. We also suggest registering on the Illawarra Shoalhaven Joint Organisation portal, which covers regional tenders involving any combination of Kiama Municipal, Shellharbour City, Shoalhaven City and Wollongong City Councils, and the Local Government Procurement portal which creates panels accessible to all councils and not for profit organisations within NSW.

Many councils use Conserve to manage contractor insurance and WHS process checks. There is an annual fee associated, however, once you're registered you can request to be approved for any other organisation using the system at no further cost. Councils will sometimes use their approved contractors on BNG as a list to approach for quotes on jobs where they don't have a contracted supplier able to perform the work and are not required to go out to tender.

If you would like any further information on our tenders or quotation process please email our Procurement and Supply Team.
