HKA Tech is an accredited supplier of PMWeb SaaS for Local Government Procurement (LGP). LGP is a business arm of Local Government NSW (LGNSW), the membership association for all councils in NSW. LGP is also a ‘prescribed entity’ under s55 of the Local Government Act 1993 (NSW) and the Local Government (General) Regulation 2005 (NSW). This means that councils do not need to go to tender for values greater than the tendering threshold (as they normally would be required to do) and may, instead, utilise supply arrangements coordinated by LGP. Since commencing in 2006, it is estimated that LGP has been responsible for saving eligible customers hundreds of millions of dollars. This has been achieved through better pricing via economies of scale and time and opportunity cost savings in not needing to go out to tender.Read more
