SSROC plays a key role in helping member councils define their procurement requirements and scope of works to obtain what they need at best value. Participation in regional contracts continues to be strong, with SSROC procuring goods and services worth approximately $32 million in the 2016-2017 financial year on behalf of the member councils, along with maintenance of approximately 35 regional contracts for its member councils to utilise. SSROC offers procurement support to all member councils.
During the 2017-2018 financial year, SSROC will undertake numerous tenders of existing and new regional contracts, including banking, mattress collection and recovery, asphalt road marking and associated products (in collaboration with LGP), and the Renewable Energy Power Purchase Agreement (PPA).
Proposed new contracts will be discussed in detail with member councils at a procurement planning event. It is anticipated that all 11 member councils will participate, with the event being facilitated by PwC and hosted at their Barangaroo rooms.
