Delegations Register

Local governments have responsibility for decision making assigned under a wide range of legislation. Each power or duty described in legislation requires local governments to fulfil a mandatory duty, or use a discretionary power to make these decisions. Delegation is the process that enables local governments to delegate its power or duties, towards enabling efficient and effective strategic, financial and operational management decisions to be made.

The delegations contained within the Delegations Register are made to Committee's pursuant to Section 5.16 of the Local Government Act 1995 (the Act), and to the Chief Executive Officer pursuant to Section 5.42 of the Act. Where listed, some of these functions are also delegated by the Chief Executive Officer to Shire Employees (sub-delegated) pursuant to Section 5.44 of the Act and other legislation where specified. 

The Delegations Register aligns with Outcome 11.1 of the Council Plan "Provide strategically focused, open and accountable governance".

About Tenders

As per section 3.57 of the Local Government Act 1995 (the Act), a local government is required to invite tenders before it enters into a contract of a prescribed kind under which another person is to supply goods or services.

The exception to this is when the value is less than that value, if there is an emergency, or as otherwise stated in the legislation.
