Council gives 20 per cent weighting for local business
A new local procurement policy adopted by Central Coast Council aims to give local businesses a better chance to compete for council tenders.
Council adopted the new policy at its March 9 meeting, during a confidential part of the meeting that was not open to the public.
The policy will give local businesses a 20 percent weighting for tenders up to $150,000.
It will be reviewed in 12 months.
Cr Kyle MacGregor said the policy would be a game changer for local small businesses and a significant reform by the council for the region.
"This is the most significant reform for local small businesses in more than a decade," Cr MacGregor said.
