Both electronic and hard copy Tenders must be lodged no later than the closing date and time advised in the tender document.

Adequate time must be allowed to upload documents electronically or to have them delivered through the mail. There is an estimate on the TenderLink site of the time to be allowed by Tenderers to upload their tender documents.
Please note that Australia Post's 'Next Day Delivery' does not apply to Coffs Harbour (it only applies to is capital cities).
Every submission will be reviewed by a tender evaluation panel. While other criteria may be used which are more specific to each tender, the following criteria will be applied to all assessments:
The assessment panel will examine all tenders received before the deadline for compliance with the tender document and the Local Government (General) Regulation.
Each tender is recorded, read in detail and examined. The receipt of all tenders, in alphabetical order, is publically notified on Council's website.
The strengths and weaknesses of each tender are assessed against the criteria, scored and weighted. You may be asked, by Council's financial assessors, to provide additional information to verify your financial capacity. Council will then consider all tenders and either accept the most advantageous tender, having regard to all the circumstances, or decline to accept any of the tenders.
You will be advised in writing whether your submission was successful or not once Council has considered all responses.
