Toowoomba Regional Council (TRC) is showing its confidence in, and support for, the regional economy by continuing to increase its spending with local suppliers.
Council’s spending with local suppliers accounted for 64% of Council’s total January 2020 procurement expenditure, according to figures presented at February’s Ordinary Meeting of Council.
TRC Finance and Business Strategy Committee chair Cr Mike Williams said Council was delivering on its commitment to support local suppliers through its purchasing activities.
Cr Williams said Council spent more than $12 million with local suppliers in January 2020.
“The January figure is further evidence that our procurement policies are supporting our local suppliers and businesses at every opportunity,” Cr Williams said.
