Local Government Procurement (LGP) is a business arm of LGNSW.
LGP provides fully integrated procurement services: establishing contract panels, consulting and procurement training to NSW councils, not-for-profit organisations, universities and state government agencies/departments.
LGP is a ‘prescribed entity’ under s55 of the Local Government Act 1993 (NSW) and Local Government (General) Regulation 2005 (NSW). This means councils don’t need to tender for values greater than the tendering threshold and instead utilise supply arrangements coordinated by LGP.
LGP focuses on creating procurement efficiencies and building procurement expertise, saving councils hundreds of millions of rate payers’ dollars.
