Your approach to design contracts will depend on the overall project value and not the value of the design element alone.

If the overall value of the project meets the Local Jobs First thresholds – this includes the construction or manufacturing phase – then you will need to apply the Standard or Strategic Project framework.

The full steps for complying with Local Jobs First for Government departments or agencies in relation to projects is outlined in the Local Jobs First Agency Guidelines. Speak with your Local Jobs First Administrator for further advice.
