Council conducts an open tendering process for purchasing activities as required by Council policy and in accordance with the HCC Code for Tenders and Contracts.
On 1 March 2012, Council adopted a new Code which will apply to all tenders commenced after this date. A copy of the new Code can be obtained through the following link: Code for Tenders and Contracts.
