Our procurement and contract management team manage all aspects of the joint procurement process from pre-tender requirements with councils through to contract management with the contractor on behalf of councils for the duration of the contract.

MWRRG typically prepares the following documentation during the procurement process:

Initial documents (before tender)
  • Memorandum of Understanding – identifies council requirements and commitments
  • Invitation to tender  – for the provision of services and/or facilities (this includes draft contract documents)

Contract documents (after evaluation)
  • Receival/Processing Contract
  • Participation Agreement (this includes contract management protocols)
  • Direct Deed
 MWRRG’s collective procurement programs are based on the Victorian Government’s guiding principles of:
  • value for money
  • open and fair competition
  • accountability
  • risk management
  • probity and transparency.
