Tenders and EOI

Eurobodalla Shire Council advertises Requests for Tenders (RFTs) and some Expressions of Interest (EOIs) electronically in the Tenderlink e-tendering portal.

We ensure that all policies, procedures and practices related to tendering, contracting and purchasing are consistent with best practice and the highest standards of ethical conduct.

Our business dealings will be transparent and open to public scrutiny wherever possible.
