Under the Government Information (Public Access) Act, City of Newcastle are required to keep a government Contracts Register. This register records information about each government contract to which we are a party that has (or is likely to have) a value of $150,000 (including GST) within 45 working days after the contract becomes effective.
The value of a contract is whichever of the following values is appropriate to the kind of contract concerned:
(a) the total estimated value of the project
(b) the total estimated value of the goods or services over the term of the contract
(c) the value of the real property transferred or
(d) the rent for the term of the lease.
The sales and leases Contracts Register is updated in accordance with the Governement Information (Public Access) Act 2009 Section 30.
The tenders Contracts Register is available below.
It should be noted that the Tenders Contracts Register currently includes Class 1 Contracts, under the Government Information (Public Access) Act 2009. We do not currently have any Class 2 or 3 Contracts.
We note that none of the entities on this register are related body corporate (as defined in the Corporations Act 2001) in respect of the contractor, or any other private sector entity in which the contractor has an interest, that will be involved in carrying out any of the contractor’s obligations under the contract or will receive a benefit under the contract.
All contracts have standard clauses which allow for variations, but require the approval of the City of Newcastle.
