We’ve been integral to the State’s recovery efforts over the past year which has been challenging for all Western Australians as the COVID-19 pandemic has affected every facet of how we live and work.
We’ve played a critical role in coordinating and implementing initiatives to stimulate the WA economy. The report outlines our activities over the past financial year and highlights our achievements, including:
- committing to 59 WA Recovery Plan projects to regional areas of WA worth $482.6 million
- raising more than $8 billion in taxation revenue on behalf of the WA Government and administering more than $133 million in Building Bonus grants under the State’s $444 million housing stimulus package
- administering more than $118 million under the Australian Government’s HomeBuilder Grant program
- procuring and distributing millions of disposable and reusable masks to ensure WA was prepared for a potential COVID-19 outbreak
- commencing the ServiceWA trial in Bunbury to place citizens at the centre of service design and delivery
- leading procurement reform and reducing red tape, making it easier for small to medium sized businesses to work with the sector
- realising around $20 million of additional savings as part of the Government Office Accommodation Reform Program
- supporting growth in the Aboriginal business sector with more than $38.6 million in contracts awarded to Aboriginal businesses across the WA Government from 1 July to 31 December 2020
