Conducting business with Council
The City of Launceston's purchasing requirements are extremely varied. In addition to general council requirements, products and services are required for a national sports stadium, a world class aquatic centre, the Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery, a crematorium and garden cemetery plus a visitor travel centre and heritage buildings, parks and gardens.
The City of Launceston has an annual expenditure of approximately $50M on Goods and Services, Maintenance activities, Council Services and Projects throughout the Municipality.
The Council's Procurement Department takes a commercial approach to the engagement of contractors, and encourages quality, value for money contractors to partner with, for the benefit of the City of Launceston ratepayers.
The long term objective is to increase the number of services under contract to ensure greater cost control and management of Council.
