Additional security measures

We are aware that some customers are having issues making payments online. This is due to Visa and Mastercard now enforcing two-factor authentication on all payments in order to increase security.

If you are having issues making an online payment, please contact your bank.

Do it online




If you are interested in working with us, or want to find out about contract opportunities, then this section is essential reading. You will also find out more information on our e-tendering portal.

Viewing tenders and proposals

Opportunities vary in scope, ranging from large-scale projects that benefit the entire region, to initiatives that benefit our fast growing City.

Our requests for tenders and proposals are advertised on the Government Electronic Tendering Service (GETS), an e-tendering portal that speeds up the tendering cycle and reduces the time and costs for us and our suppliers.

To use the e-tender portal you can register online for free, but you will need a RealMe account to register Once registered you will receive notifications of upcoming open public tender opportunities.

We also publish tender information on the TCC website under Public Notices 

Responding to tenders and proposals

If you identify an opportunity:

  • Read all the documents provided
  • Attend any pre-tender briefing sessions
  • Check anything you do not understand and seek clarification before the clarification period closes via the GETS Forum.
  • Plan and prepare your response
  • Make sure you understand the timetable of the tender and submit your response in the correct format before the closing date and time.
  • For guidance on electronic submission document instructions, including document formatting please refer to this supplier guide (156kb pdf).

We will then:

  • Evaluate and negotiate: Responses will be evaluated using the method set out in the tender documents. This may include presentations and site visits.
