Panel of suppliers
Some projects require a department or agency to appoint a panel of suppliers to provide specific goods or services over a period of time, from which panel members will be engaged to deliver required work packages.
Panel contracts are subject to Local Jobs First if the total value of a project that utilises the panel meets the Local Jobs First thresholds of:
- $1 million or more in regional Victoria, or
- $3 million or more in metropolitan Melbourne or for statewide activities.
If you are a panel supplier and the project meets the Local Jobs First thresholds, the procuring agency will notify you in the approach to market and contracts.
