Community & Strategic 4 Year Plans

The Community Plan is a comprehensive community vision for the City of Unley to 2033. It works in conjunction with the Strategic 4 Year Delivery Plan which provides a practical guideline for our work over the next four years, outlining the activities Council will undertake to achieve the community’s long term goals as set out in the Community Plan.

Long Term Financial Plan

Used to aid financial decision making to ensure the Council remains financially sustainable, the Long Term Financial Plan supports the delivery of the Community Plan and its objectives, and assists in the development of the Annual Business Plan and Budgets.

Annual Business Plan & Budget

Fees & Charges

Fees and charges are administered for a range of services and facilities. Some fees and charges are discretionary, where the Council is free to determine the charge, and some are statutory or by-law controlled.

We review discretionary fees and charges as part of our annual budget process.
 
 

Corporate Strategies

Corporate strategies identify the challenges and opportunities across key areas of our Council, and outline the plans and actions required to achieve the long term goals as set out in the Community Plan.

Procurement & Contracts

Procurement is the process by which Council engages with suppliers to purchase goods and services, or supply of essential services.

  • Procurement Methods

    Dependent on the need, Council manages procurement by different methods:

    • Request for Tender (RFT) – a formal offer open to the public to bid for the supply of specified goods, services or works, under specified terms. Open market.
    • Expression of Interest (EOI) – a formal invitation to prospective suppliers to provide information and opinions on the methodologies of meeting a specific need. Limited market.
    • Selective Engagement – this approach is used where knowledge of the marketplace exists, with a specified number of representative suppliers invited to tender. Selective market.
  • Procurement Principles

    Procurement Principles that underpin procurement activities:

    • Value for Money
    • Open and Fair Competition
    • Ethical Behaviour and Fair Treatment
    • Risk Management
    • Professional Integrity and Probity
    • Compliance with Statutory Obligations
    • Social, Economic and Environmental Sustainability
    • Financial Responsibility.
  • How to Apply
    Council’s tenders and contracts are listed on the SA Tenders and Contracts website, the central source for public procurement opportunities within South Australia.
