Suppliers & Contractors

About procurement

SunWater is committed to driving value for money through our procurement and supporting local industry within regional Queensland for all its goods and services. This gives us the flexibility to match supplier solutions to the specific needs of a project, generating employment opportunities and providing economic benefits in the local community.

We work closely with industry to support our business in the delivery of construction, upgrade, repair and maintenance of capital infrastructure such as dams, weirs, pumping stations, pipelines and water treatment plants.

At SunWater, we take environmentally sustainable responsibilities and workplace health and safety seriously with all providers of services. Our commitment is to provide a safe and risk free environment for staff, contractors, customers and the community, which extends past our responsibility as a bulk water service provider. Central to our corporate culture is the value placed on safe work practices and taking every measure possible to ensure the safety of others.

Contractors, consultants and suppliers of goods and services that operate in these industries are encouraged to tender for the supply of goods and services, when and as required by SunWater.
