Council agrees to establish a business advisory group (if one does not already exist) to assist its understanding of small business needs in its local area. The group should include local small business operators and members of their representative bodies.
Council agrees to implement a procurement policy which recognises that local small business is a significant contributor to economic development in its area, and should be provided with a fair opportunity to provide goods and services to Council wherever possible.
Council agrees to work towards ensuring all undisputed invoices from small business suppliers are paid within 30 days.
Council agrees to implement (if it does not already have one) a timely and cost-effective process to manage any disputes it may have with small business. The process may include the referral of disputes to an independent dispute resolution service (such as that offered by the OSBC).
