The State Government has committed to helping regional businesses compete for government tenders.
The Government says Local Content Officers and online portals will support its election commitment to increasing economic development and employment across regional Western Australia through the Regional Development Commissions.
Regionally based businesses currently represent less than 20 per cent of total suppliers to government and receive less than six per cent of the value of government contracts.
CCF WA is engaging with Regional Development Minister Alannah MacTiernan to represent our regional members’ interests. If you are aware of any Government procurement practices that disadvantage regional contractors, please contact Andy Graham at firstname.lastname@example.org.
