WA Industry Link
On Friday 16 March, Premier Mark McGowan launched WA Industry Link – a WA Jobs initiative to help local businesses secure work on State Government contracts.
Nine pilot projects have been identified for inclusions as part of the WA Industry Link initiative, including the METRONET Railcar Procurement, the New Museum Project and Port of Port Hedland Berth 3 Deck Replacement.
Message to international investors
Companies that are adding economic benefits to Western Australia by employing local people, using local sub-contractors and creating additional economic benefits to the state are going to be in a better position to win government contracts moving forward.
The Participation Plan requirement will be weighted at a percentage of the qualitative evaluation on all government contracts that the Western Australian Industry Participation Strategy (WAIPS) relates to.
Hence, in addition to strong commercial and technical bids, a strong commitment to local content will benefit potential investors/bidders. To any interested prime contractor looking at bidding on government contracts, a recommended step is to work together with the Industry Link Advisory Service (ILAS).
