A priority for the State Government is to grow the economy, create jobs and support the diversification of Australia’s industry sectors. This is where the industry participation or economic participation policy can play a significant role.
By virtue of its collective size, public sector procurement is recognised as an important means of implementing government policy in respect of industry development, innovation and the long-term well-being of the economy.
The South Australian Industry Participation weighting system balances the economic benefit to the State as part of a holistic value-for-money assessment. The policy identifies that procuring from locally-based suppliers and suppliers who source inputs locally, maximises the amount of local labour and capital used, and therefore the amount of economic contribution being retained in South Australia.
The ‘Meet the Buyer - Northern Adelaide’ is the third event to be held in the region during 2016; the first two events attracting well over 800 attendees. The event brings together local businesses and senior government project and contract managers from the state government and the Cities of Playford, Salisbury and Port Adelaide – Enfield and creates an opportunity for businesses to meet key state and local government staff with responsibility for the design of projects, sourcing business solutions, purchasing goods and services.
This Meet the Buyer will focus on 'projects which fall in the Northern Adelaide' boundaries and will be open (but not limited) to businesses mainly engaged in key infrastructure projects for sectors across road, transport, building and construction infrastructure, education, housing, water, energy and related professional services.
