To help us achieve our outcomes, SA Water has a panel of suppliers and a register of contractors. All companies and contractors go through approval processes before they can work for us.
We have nine different panels:
The terms and conditions for each contract or preferred supplier agreement are forwarded to our suppliers as part of the bid invitation or contract establishment process.
On or after the award of the contract, in most cases a consolidated contract is provided. Where no specific conditions of contract are identified in our purchase order, then our standard terms and conditions as outlined below apply.
The Purpose of updating the Accredited Contractors List for land Development
By maintaining a list of accredited contractors for Land Development SA Water endeavor to provide assurance for both developers, SA Water and our Customers that all new infrastructure will be constructed safely and competently to our standards.
Scope of services
The accredited contractors for land development may carry out water, recycled water and/or sewer pipelaying and associated works per the SCM/WSCM Engineering Standards (red and blue book); this will be referred to as Category 1 accreditation.
There are more complex works, such as pump station installation, more specialist infrastructure and or other facilities, which are referred to as Category 2, 3 and 4 accreditation which will assist the Developers in selecting a contractor for these tasks.
Obligation of the Person Conducting the Business or Undertaking (PCBU)
This is not a pre-qualified list as there are a number of obligations under WHS and SA State business laws that the PCBU/Developer needs to ensure before commencing works with the selected contractor.
The list is to provide a reference point for PCBU/Developers for contractors who have demonstrated that they have the skills and capabilities to undertake construction and commissioning works of SA Water assets and infrastructure that meet the required SA Water Technical Standards.
SA Water make no guarantees or warranties as to the performance, commercial practices or financial status of these firms or individuals. Nor do we endorse any of the workmanship, or services offered by the firms or individuals listed.
It is a requirement that the PCBU/Developer undertake normal due diligence when selecting a contractor to ensure compliance with applicable laws, regulations, best practice, the associated Land Development Agreement requirements such as work health and safety, technical standards, operational conditions and ethical conduct. Valid licences and insurance requirements are to be assessed prior to awarding a contract.

To meet Work Health and Safety (WHS) laws we have an online Contractor Management System (CMS) and compliance for all of our contractors. This is mandatory and ensures:
Contractors must demonstrate they have systems that are compliant with WHS legislation and can work safely alongside us helping to reduce the overall risk of injury. To do this the contracting company must answer a series of questions to become a pre-accredited contractor.
The CMS also provides an online corporate induction to ensure contractors and subcontractors are aware of our WHS requirements before arriving at a work site.
This system helps us create an efficient workplace and a safe working environment for everyone.
All contractors and subcontractors must show their SA Water Contractor Card before they start work at a site where we have influence and control. The SA Water Contractor Card is provided once contractor and subcontractor staff have successfully completed the corporate induction.
The online induction must be completed every two years.
How are contractors selected?
We select contractors in accordance with the following key policy principles:
