We're committed to helping businesses access major project procurement opportunities to benefit Queenslanders and the broader economy.
We work closely with the Industry Capability Network (ICN Qld) to deliver the Queensland Charter for Local Content. This provides Queensland's business community with full, fair and reasonable access to government procurement.
We also support local business by:
- administering the Queensland Charter for Local Content
- facilitating local content services to promote major project opportunities
- collecting and reporting local content achievement and performance.
Local content in major projects
North Queensland Stadium
The $250 million North Queensland Stadium project will deliver an iconic, 25,000-seat regional stadium in Townsville in time for the 2020 NRL season.
Suppliers can register expressions of interest for work on the North Queensland Stadium project.
Destination Brisbane Consortium, The Star Entertainment Group (formerly Echo Entertainment Group), Far East Consortium (Australia) and Chow Tai Fook Enterprises is delivering this world-class tourism, leisure and entertainment precinct in the heart of the Brisbane CBD.
The project will deliver economic growth for Queensland by creating over 2000 jobs during peak construction and 8000 jobs when the Integrated Resort Development is operational.
ICN Queensland Black Business Finder
The Queensland Government is helping indigenous businesses around the state to benefit from Queensland's major projects.
Commissioned by the government, the ICN Qld has developed the Black Business Finder. The database now lists over 440 indigenous businesses.
The Black Business Finder is on par and even ahead of many of Australia's more established indigenous databases.
Sunshine Coast Hospital
We're working with ICN Qld and the Sunshine Coast Regional Council to ensure the local economy benefits from construction of the region's new hospital.
Development of the Sunshine Coast Public University Hospital is the largest infrastructure project undertaken on the Sunshine Coast. During construction, almost 82% of goods and services are being supplied by South East Queensland and regional businesses.
