Logan City Council shares purchasing advice with local suppliers

A second information session for local businesses wanting to supply goods and services to Logan City Council will be held after a sell-out event earlier this year.

The Supplying goods and services to Council: what you need to know event on Thursday, July 22 will unlock a wealth of information for City of Logan businesses.

Council spends around $500 million annually on goods and services, which is a significant contribution to the city’s $13.32 billion economy.

Procurement and Appropriations Special Committee Chair, Councillor Jacob Heremaia, said Council was committed to increasing its local spending.

“When we spend money locally, we stimulate the economy and encourage businesses to grow and employ City of Logan residents,” Cr Heremaia said.

“We want to ensure our procurement processes are easy to understand so local suppliers have more opportunities to get involved for our spending.”

Cr Heremaia said the first supplier information session, held in May as part of Queensland Small Business Month, had booked out in hours.

Council adopted an updated and dedicated Buy Logan procurement policy earlier this year.

The supplier information event will explain Council’s procurement processes, outline upcoming opportunities, and offer networking opportunities. Numbers are limited to two representatives per company to ensure as many local suppliers can attend.

To register, go to Eventbrite.
