The Western Australian Government spends around $30 billion dollars every year on building, works, goods and services for the community. This creates a range of contracting opportunities for small and medium-sized businesses in Western Australia.
More than just a job opportunity, securing a government contract can help your business:
- Gain a valuable reference - Government agencies choose suppliers that can offer reliable, efficient and value for money contracting solutions. Once you have completed a government contract, you will have a reference of your business’s contracting ability, which may help you secure work in the private sector or overseas markets.
- Earn a reliable source of income - In most cases, WA Government agencies pay correctly prepared invoices within 30 days.
- Secure more government contracts - Once you have gained experience from supplying goods or services to one government agency, you have a strong selling point to secure more contracts with other agencies and public authorities.
There are approximately 130 WA Government agencies that procure a diverse range of goods and services from the private sector.
In addition to the WA Government, there are many other supply opportunities for small and medium sized businesses available from Australian Government agencies, local councils, national organisations and other State and Territory Government agencies.
