Who is ICN Victoria
Industry Capability Network Victoria, an independent organisation supported by the Victorian Government, has been working for local industry since 1984. We were founded on the principle that local businesses, especially small and medium-sized enterprises, should be given full and fair opportunities to compete for work on major projects, aided by local capability considerations. In turn, this helps create jobs by encouraging industry to first think local, social and sustainable in all procurement decisions.
Funded predominantly by the Department of Jobs, Precincts and Regions, and led by our Board of Directors and Executive Leadership Team, ICN Victoria is the trusted government procurement partner, administering the Local Jobs First Policy and the Social Procurement Framework. ICN Victoria delivers Victorian employment and socio-economic outcomes, and makes a difference by engaging local industry and stimulating local connections and jobs in Victoria and Australia.
