The Queensland Government is committed to helping business access major project procurement opportunities to benefit Queenslanders and the broader economy.
We are working closely with Industry Capability Network (ICN Qld) to deliver the Queensland Charter for Local Content which is providing Queensland's business community with full, fair and reasonable access to government procurement.
We are supporting local business by:
- administering the Queensland Charter for Local Content
- facilitating local content services to maximise government procurement opportunities
- collecting and reporting local content achievement and performance.
