Awarded Council Contracts

As part of our commitment to be as transparent and proactive as possible in relation to sharing information of interest to those in Queenstown Lakes, we regularly upload awarded contracts and supplier spend reports.

Information that isn't published

In consideration of commercial sensitivity and privacy, we do not publish the details of sole traders (i.e. individuals who are not contracting through a company).

Detailed information about spend and contracts may be commercially confidential. Should you require this information please submit a request for information under the Local Government Official Information and Meetings Act and that request will be considered in full.

Accuracy of information reports

The information we provide in the reports is accurate at the time of publication.

The information is subject to change if projects, priorities and time frames are varied for awarded contracts, or if financial reconciliations or adjustments are made in respect of prior payments.

The reporting threshold for both the awarded contract and supplier spend reports is $50k.

These reports are produced on a quarterly basis, and this page will be updated as soon as practicable once the reports are produced. Absence of a report does not mean it does not exist and a request for the information can be made via the "submit a request" link above.
