What Do We Achieve
Private Sector Projects
The Government of South Australia has recognised that government expenditure activity has the potential to deliver expanded economic development opportunities. A further benefit to the South Australian economy can be promoted where increased participation weightings are used to attract or develop significant capital investment for the State with the associated industry development.
The South Australian Industry Participation Policy applies when private sector projects receive Government of South Australia support over $2.5 million cash or in-kind. In these cases the private sector proponent must implement an Industry Participation Plan to ensure that capable South Australian small and medium enterprises are given full, fair and reasonable opportunity to tender and participate in the project.
The Industry Advocate is actively looking for local subcontractors and suppliers to register their business on the South Australian Product Register that highlights those businesses economic contributing to the State via manufacturing, assembling, distributing and installing products in South Australia.
