The City of Ballarat utilises an electronic tender listing system.   This system speeds up the tendering cycle and reduces the time and costs for both City of Ballarat and suppliers. To use this system and to access the tenders being called you must first be a registered Supplier.

City of Ballarat wishes to invite organisations to bid for the supply of goods and/or services contained within this system.  As a registered supplier, you can receive email notification of any new tenders we publish, download and view the documentation electronically, and participate in forums to seek clarification or to ask questions.  Where available, submission of your bids can be completed through the e-tender box facility.

To view current and past tenders please visit our Tenderlink site.  The documents can be obtained thru Tenderlink or by contacting the Customer Service Officers on 5320 5500 to arrange for the documentation.
