Department of State Development

From 1 October 2017, all procurements approved will use the new Economic Contribution Test and updated Industry Participation Plan. They can be found here along with updated policy documents as well.

If you have been directed here to complete one of these templates, it is because the procurement was approved prior to 1 October 2017. These templates will remain on this website until mid-December as an interim measure to cover this period of transition.
