RDA Northern Rivers and NSW Reconstruction Authority have collaborated to list Northern Rivers tenders in one easy-to-find location. With this feature, we’ve responded to calls from businesses for an easier way to find tender opportunities across our seven local government areas. It can be accessed on the Live Northern Rivers website via https://livenorthernrivers.com.au/tenders
Live Northern Rivers
Live Northern Rivers is a liveability platform that was recently launched by RDA Northern Rivers to attract a workforce from within and beyond the Northern Rivers. Businesses work hard to build and maintain a reliable team of employees in our region. Live Northern Rivers aims to support employers with information for relocators from outside the region, past residents considering returning to the region and residents interested in locating to other parts of the Northern Rivers.
All Northern Rivers tenders in one place
This portal provides a feed of all open-for-tender opportunities with local councils and on the NSW government tender portal. The information is sourced from official tender portals and links back to the relevant procurement platforms for tender submissions.
Nathan McGrath, RDA Northern Rivers Director of Regional Development said, “Doing business with councils in our region means being across seven different tender portals. We want to make it easier for businesses to see, at a glance, the projects that are open for tender across our region.”
The portal will aggregate the tenders that have a status of open, closed and awarded in the Northern Rivers. This covers the local government areas of Clarence Valley, Richmond Valley, Lismore City, Kyogle, Ballina Shire, Byron Shire, and the Tweed Shire. NSW Government tenders for projects within the region will also be visible in the Live Northern Rivers tender portal.
Businesses interested in submitting tenders must still register with the relevant procurement platforms where detailed tender documents and applications must be made. Future enhancements to this tender portal page will include the ability to set up alerts, weekly notifications and shortlisting of tenders of interest.
