Ku-ring-gai Council

The Client

Ku-ring-gai Council is a local government area in the Upper North Shore region of Sydney. The region is named after the Ku-ring-gai tribe who once inhabited the area. Ku-ring-gai Council first adopted Conserve in May 2010 and currently have more than 120 individual contractor businesses ac credited within the online contractor management system.

Challenge

Ku-ring-gai Council was looking to adopt a uniform process across the organisation to ensure contractor compliance with their WHS requirements. Prior to the uptake of Conserve, they used a manual process to ensure the councils legal and WHS criteria were met, however this proved difficult to manage and was highly resource intensive as different groups would often use different processes.

Our Solution

Conserve was adopted by the council as their contractor management system. It is hosted and accessed completely online, providing a consistent process for prequalification of contractors as well as the tracking and reporting of contractor compliance with council’s WHS requirements.
