Are you passionate about the Peninsula and want to contribute to maintaining the assets that make this a great place to live, work and visit?

Mornington Peninsula Shire currently delivers more than $80 million dollars’ worth of services, maintaining $2 billion of assets to the community each year, ensuring our place is safe, beautiful and a great place to live.

Many of these services are delivered by contracting businesses through a tender process. The current contracts expire in June 2023, so we are reaching out to obtain expressions of interest from local providers to join us in delivering exceptional services to the community.

While the EOI is open to state, national and international service providers, we want to encourage local business or enterprises to throw their hat in the ring, too. We are seeking EOI's from providers big and small, with a strong focus being placed on local providers and employers, sustainability and the inclusion of social enterprise.

Not only should the services create a physically great place to live but they should support the overall health, wellbeing and prosperity of our community.

We are seeking expressions of interest on the following contracts:

  • building management
  • bushland management
  • cleansing (including beach cleaning)
  • drainage
  • parks (including sports fields and playgrounds)
  • furniture
  • roads maintenance
  • roadsides
  • signs.

Want to find out more?
If you are new to working for the Shire, it may feel a bit overwhelming. We are hosting a briefing session for all interested businesses or enterprises which will explain in detail what is needed from you to submit your response, as well as go through the requirements of each contract.

To take part in the online briefing session on Tuesday 13 July you must sign up to Tenderlink before 12 July. Once you have registered, you be able to access the details to attend the briefing session via Zoom.
