The development of partnerships and resource sharing within the Far North Queensland region is acknowledged as being integral to ongoing regional capacity and service delivery. The culture of resource sharing is well developed within the FNQROC region with significant achievements in sharing common planning tasks, strategic directions and funding priorities.

Procurement activities are to operate within these guidelines:

  • Where there exists limited supply for a product and/or service, 
  • Where member councils are competing against each other for the same goods and/or services
  • Where there is the opportunity for improved service delivery and/or
  • Where member Councils would benefit from the sharing of knowledge and collaboration
