Local Industry Policy

In response to changes in global market conditions, the WA state government has revised its approach to local industry participation and developed a framework to address new challenges and opportunities for local suppliers. The 10-step framework will improve channels of communication with both suppliers and project proponents to ensure the State has a more complete picture of what benefits resource projects bring to Western Australia.

The Western Australian Government Local Industry Participation Framework includes information on the 10 steps, which are:

  1. Strategic focus
  2. Supplier performance
  3. Definition of local benefit
  4. Strategic projects
  5. ICN
  6. Local Industry Participation Unit
  7. Commonwealth Government
  8. International cooperation
  9. Leadership
  10. Skilled workforce.
