Government departments and agencies are critical to the successful delivery of the Local Jobs First.
The policy must be applied by all Victorian government departments and agencies for any type of project with a value of:
- $1 million or more in regional Victoria, or
- $3 million or more in metropolitan Melbourne or for state-wide activities.
Local Jobs First may also be voluntarily applied by government departments or agencies to projects below the $1 million or $3 million thresholds.
While there are guidelines specific to how Local Jobs First must be applied, the menus at right and below provide some additional practical guidance for departments and agencies.
