  • Suppliers (new and existing) who are not currently using the VendorPanel platform are encouraged to sign up.
  • Existing Suppliers on Council’s Supplier Panel Contracts and Approved Supplier lists will receive invitations to join these lists. Accepting these invites is crucial for continued collaboration with Council.
