Local Industry Policy for government projects
The Local Industry Policy gives local small-to-medium businesses a fair opportunity to be considered for major government-funded infrastructure and resource-based project work. Project owners, known as project proponents, have a responsibility to ensure the policy applies to the entire supply chain and are required to develop a Local Industry Participation Plan.
The Local Industry Policy aims to boost Queensland's economy and provide local businesses with a full, fair and reasonable opportunity to participate. Communities can also benefit from government projects occurring in their regions.
Businesses supplying to government projects can also benefit from adopting new technologies and processes to meet global benchmarks and compete for international business.
Project proponents have opportunities to deal with globally capable and competitive local businesses and to contribute to the local community.
This guide will help you understand your obligations under Queensland's Local Industry Policy.
