Local Jobs First is about creating opportunities for local small and medium enterprises (SMEs), generating more jobs and helping to grow Victoria’s economy.
It applies to the full range of government goods, services and construction activities that meet the financial criteria.
The policy applies to all Victorian Government departments and agencies, as well as contractors delivering or supplying into Victorian Government projects.
The links at right and below provide practical information for businesses that are engaged to supply into government projects or that wish to supply into government projects, as well as information for project grant recipients.
Full and detailed information for suppliers/contractors and supply chain businesses is contained in the Local Jobs First Supplier Guidelines.
