About LGIS About LGIS

Local Government Only

LGIS is owned by the LGAQ and therefore all Queensland councils benefit from our success. Our suite of services is available only to local government. Our products and services extend over the asset lifecycle, from concept and business case development, procurement management, project management, construction management and cost management services, asset management and optimisation, to asset replacement strategies.

Understanding Our Clients

Because we work only with local government we understand councils' needs. This understanding underpins our drive to provide best value in delivery, guaranteed solutions, and shared knowledge across the local government sector.

LGIS listens to our clients and stakeholders to uncover ways we can partner to produce innovative solutions and provide better outcomes for all. We invest in innovation to deliver better outcomes for local government, and work with research institutions such as Griffith University's Smart Water Research Centre, University of Queensland's Geothermal Energy Centre of Excellence and Queensland Treasury Corporation.


LGIS works with local government to ensure innovation is always considered when developing infrastructure solutions. Whether it is leading edge technology or improvements to management and strategy, LGIS can find the right solution for your infrastructure needs. LGIS helps councils make infrastructure more productive and cost efficient, management decisions more informed, and community outcomes more valuable.

From Smart Street Lighting to Asset Management solutions, we work with local government clients to develop innovative tools that assist them in getting best value out of their infrastructure assets.

Remotely Piloted Aircraft (RPA), commonly known as Drones or UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles), could soon be the essential tool within each Local Government’s toolkit with the assistance of a local government-wide service. The opportunities are clear and this innovative technology has the potential to significantly enhance council service capabilities across a number of operational areas in the long-term and immediate future.
