Tenders or Employment Downloads and Personal Data Collection

When you select a Tender or Employment download link on the council website, you will be redirected to a form which requires you to fill in your contact details prior to downloading the document file. Only upon completion of the form will you be allowed to download the associated Tender/Employment files.

Why are your details required for Tenders or Employment Downloads?

Tender and Employment Addendums need to be sent to people that have downloaded the original Tender and Employment document files. This is to ensure that they have the correct and most current information upon which to base their decisions.

When Tender or Employment Addendums are published, an e-mail will automatically be sent to all people that have downloaded the original tender or registered for employment advising them of the Addendum. The Addendum document will be attached to the e-mail. If the e-mail is not received by the intended recipient, it will be returned to the e-mail address contained in Email Notification for the tender/employment notice. A report of these e-mails can be produced and is visible only to Mitchell Shire Web site administrators.
