Construction Trades Tender Session to provide local businesses a chance to pre-qualify for work opportunities at Council

Gladstone Regional Council is hosting an information session for owners and managers of businesses, that are interested in providing construction trade services to Council.

The information session will promote recent Invitations to Tender for a range of construction trade services and provide attendees with guidance for submitting complete and conforming offers to Council for the Register of Pre-Qualified Suppliers (RPQS).

The session will be held at the Gladstone Entertainment Convention Centre (GECC) in Hall A between 2-4pm on Friday, 9 October 2020.

Gladstone Region Deputy Mayor Kahn Goodluck said RPQS panels will be established for Building Services (such as carpentry, painting and tiling), Concreting, Electrical, Plumbing and Welding Services.

“If you want to learn more about the construction trade services tender requirements of Council, then this information session is one not to be missed,” Councillor Goodluck said.

“By being appointed to a RPQS panel, businesses can become pre-qualified to complete work for Council, minimising the need for lengthy quoting processes for small contracts (under $200,000 ex GST) which are time consuming for Council and business owners”

Cr Goodluck said the information session would be filmed and made available online for those unable to attend.

“Attendees will also be able to submit questions with their RSVP, these questions will be addressed during the session,” he said.

Please visit prior to the 6 October 2020, to register your attendance.
