Procurement and purchase orders

Our procurement policy, and terms and conditions for dealing with suppliers of goods and/or services to Porirua City Council.

Procurement plays an essential role in the delivery of our strategic priorities and outcomes, using public money to purchase a wide variety of goods, services and works.

At Porirua City Council we want our procurement to be fair and transparent, promoting the social, economic, environmental, and cultural well-being of our community in the present and for the future.

Our procurement objectives are to:

  • Get the best result from our spend, including value-for-money over the life of the goods/services/works
  • Build a good reputation as a preferred customer
  • Align procurement objectives to our strategic priorities and objectives.


Procurement Policy

Our Procurement Policy guides Council employees and contractors to achieving these objectives and ensure good governance and financial management.
