Maximum Expected Cost of Procurement Before An Open Tender Is Required

G Hill made this Official Information request to Selwyn District Council

The request was successful.

From: G Hill

Hi. Does Selwyn City Council have a financial limit on the maximum expected cost of procurement (for goods, construction, software, consultancy etc.) before an open tendering process is triggered?

If so, what is that dollar amount?

If so, when was that dollar amount set?

If there are financial tiers for direct appointment, request for quotes etc. could you also please specify these.

If this is specified in a procurement policy or suchlike, could you please provide a copy.

Yours faithfully,

G Hill
