Changes to Section 108 & 109 of the Local Government Act
To support the changes to Section 108 & 109 of the Local Government Act 2020, the MAV Procurement team has issued a Collaborative Procurement Guidance Note (see below) detailing the guiding principles for Councils to consider as they undertake their collaborative procurement.
On October 27, MAV Procurement hosted a sector wide Collaborative Procurement Forum outlining a suggested road map to collaboration and highlighted the collaborative efforts currently underway at the Northern Metro RPEN and Easter Region Group of councils. The Acting Director, Local Government at the Victorian Auditor-General’s Office also joined the discussion to present VAGO’s perspective on the latest collaborative requirements. See below for a copy of the slide deck or click here to watch a replay of the Collaborative Procurement Forum (Victorian LG Sector).
