Tender alerts

Brisbane City Council seeks tenders and quotes to buy goods and services. Tenders and quotes are advertised on Council's website. Council uses SAP Ariba to alert interested suppliers of upcoming tenders. To be eligible to receive tender notifications and submit a bid, suppliers will need to register with Council and have a SAP Business Network Account. To register your interest to become a supplier of Council, complete Council's Supplier self-registration request form.

Council will invite suppliers to tender via SAP Ariba based on their nominated UNSPSC. Suppliers can view upcoming and current tender information

Download the Supplier registration guide (Word – 346kb) for assistance when registering and navigating the portal.

It is important that we know the types of products and services that your business provides. Council uses the UNSPSC (product and services) classification codes to search for potential suppliers to invite to tender. When completing your supplier registration questionnaire, it is important that you provide the product and services code of the goods and services that you supply.

Once you have a SAP Business Network account, you will automatically receive tender email alerts based on your nominated UNSPSC (product and services) code. 

For more information about UNSPSC codes, download our UNSPSC User Guide (Word – 208kb).

How to add or remove UNSPSC categories for tender notifications

SAP Ariba allows suppliers to maintain their own data. Suppliers can access their UNSPSC information via self-service in the SAP Ariba portal. Keep your Supplier registration questionnaire up to date with accurate UNSPSC details to ensure your company is considered for potential business opportunities.

  • Log in to your SAP Business Network account 
  • Navigate to SAP Ariba proposals and questionnaires
  • Access Council’s Supplier registration questionnaire
  • Click revise response

It will be mandatory to choose at least one UNSPSC classification, however you can choose as many as you wish to have against your business record in SAP Ariba.
