Online Form - Town of Port Hedland Procurement Expo (REGISTRATION NOW CLOSED)


The Town, in collaboration with the Port Hedland Chamber of Commerce and Industry, is holding a half-day workshop for contractors that will demystify the process of winning local government contracts. The workshop will start with an introductory session on how the Town procures services, and what is required from contractors.

The next session will then focus on the Town’s upcoming process to pre-approve registered builders and trades for pre-qualified supplier panels. Being a pre-qualified supplier gives you the chance to win more, and regular, work with the Town – helping to shore up your business. We’ll end the workshop with a hands-on session focused on VendorPanel – the portal the Town uses to collect quotes and tenders. It’s a must for businesses wanting to win contracts with the Town.
