An autonomous, prosperous and sustainable community and council


When we want to purchase (procure) goods and / or services, there are several options available.

The main process is through a public tender. We advertise for suppliers and service providers to provide goods and / or services to us.

Each ‘call for tender’ provides details of what goods and / or services we need and how to submit a tender.


Council calls tenders and some quotations through Vendorpanel. It is free for potential suppliers to set up a profile on this platform, to download and submit tenders. 

Please ensure your company is registered with VendorPanel so you have access to Torres Strait Island Regional Council procurement opportunities. 

Register via the VendorPanel Marketplace’ - ‘CLICK HERE TO REGISTER

  • It’s FREE and only takes a couple of minutes
  • Once you have registered you will be able to add colleagues to your company profile.
  • You and your colleagues must be registered to be invited to respond to new projects and opportunities and will then be able to submit quotes and proposals

Please note,  if you are an existing VendorPanel registered Supplier, you still need to register in the Marketplace to get these opportunities. It’s easy and will be linked to your existing profile. In the registration email, ‘CLICK HERE TO GET STARTED’, accept the invitation and sign into your existing account to register.

If you do not have access to a computer, Council has computers available for residents to use at the divisional offices.  

Council does not open tenders publicly, but Council may be required to make documentation and information contained in, or provided in connection with, a tender publicly available, where that documentation or information is required to be disclosed pursuant to a provision of the Local Government Act 2009 or the Local Government Regulation 2012.
