Procurement and Purchasing Support

City of Newcastle has made a commitment to process all invoices from local suppliers as soon as approved. 

City of Newcastle is further supporting local business through its recently adopted Procurement Policy, which includes a minimum local weighting assessment of 10%. Where possible, this weighting will be increased through to 30 September 2020. 

Who does this support apply to?

These terms apply to all local business with existing contracts in place. 

Local Business means a business that either has a branch or office physically located within the Newcastle Local Government Area, or has its head office located within the Newcastle Local Government Area or the adjoining Local Government Areas of Lake Macquarie, Port Stephens, Cessnock or Maitland. 

How can I apply or find out more?

Suppliers with existing contracts in place do not need to do anything, as faster payments will occur automatically as part of our standard invoice procedures.

Potential suppliers wishing to be considered for future contracts should refer to our Business pages.
