Other Policies & Procedures
There are a number of other policies and procedures that are relevant to State Government procurement. These include:
Western Australian Buy Local Policy 2020
In July 2020, the Premier launched the revised Buy Local Policy, known as the WA Buy Local Policy 2020. The Buy Local Policy 2002 will be phased out during a planned 6 month transition to the WA Buy Local Policy 2020.
The Policy contains a range of initiatives and price preferences that provide local businesses with an enhanced opportunity when bidding to supply to the Western Australian Government.
Until formally advised, continue to operate under the Buy Local Policy 2002. If you are from an agency or prospective supplier and require further clarification, contact the Industry Link Advisory Service by phoning +61 8 6277 2999 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Department of Jobs, Tourism, Science and Innovation is now the lead agency for the administration of the Buy Local Policy.
Aboriginal Procurement Policy
The State Government is committed to supporting Aboriginal owned businesses through the establishment of the Aboriginal Procurement Policy. From 1 July 2018, government departments will be required to award contracts to registered Aboriginal businesses, consistent with progressive targets increasing to three per cent. The targets will apply to all Government Agencies and Government Trading Entities when purchasing goods, services, community services and works.
Building Local Industry Policy
From October 2018, the Building Local Industry Policy will continue in a modified form, applying only to private sector projects.
State Supply Commission Policies
State Supply Commission (SSC) policies provide a framework for procurement that reflects best practice principles. The Western Australian Jobs Act 2017 requires the WAIPS to be consistent with SSC policies.
