  • How to use the Records
    These records are not available at Public Record Office and are available through the Geelong Heritage Centre, 51 Little Malop Street, Geelong.

    These records have been serialised as part of the PROV Distributed Network Place of Deposit program. Geelong Heritage Centre has been approved as a Place of Deposit for permanent value municipal records for the region under s14 of the Public Records Act 1973.

    Scan the Accession Consignment List to locate the relevant volume. Indexes were in some cases created for contract registers. Where created these are found in the beginning of the volumes that they index.

  • Function / Content
    This series registered and summarised contracts let by the City of Geelong. Contract registers were to specify the several works to be done and the materials to be furnished and the prices to be paid for the same and the times within which the said works are to be completed and the said materials to be furnished. Registers of Tenders have been appraised as permanent value records to fill the gaps where Registers of Contracts are no longer extant.

  • Recordkeeping System
    Each contract was allocated a unique registration number. This was often recorded as a sequential number with a year suffix, or as a running number with a letter prefix. The letter prefix indicated the area in which the work was carried out.
