Council's objective is to make smart buying decisions, seeking sustainability and value for money when purchasing assets or services. This is accomplished by encouraging and fostering fair competition and innovation, while ensuring potential risks are managed.
Hastings District Council spends approximately $110 million a year on infrastructure, facilities and services on behalf of the residents of Hastings.
This means that Council procurement not only has a budgetary impact, but also has a significant impact on our local communities and on the quality of life we enjoy.
The range of projects, goods and services is broad, from the bulk purchase of toilet rolls for public toilets and the sourcing of computer systems, to the installation of water pipes and the construction of roads and bridges.
Through our procurement process, Council aims to achieve public value whereby the focus is not solely on price but about getting the best result over the whole life of the goods, services or works. This includes the concept of ‘broader outcomes’, being that procurement can be used to support wider social, economic, cultural and environmental outcomes that go beyond the immediate purchase of goods and services. This is describe as progressive procurement and is the pathway to achieving those broader outcomes.
A key focus for Council is continue to build relationships with suppliers that encourage fair competition, innovation and certainty of supply for both parties
