WA Industry Link

The WA Industry Link initiative connects local businesses to government contracts, creating more jobs for Western Australians.
Last updated:

The WAIPS Portal is live from 1 July 2024. 

WA Industry Link is an initiative by the Department of Jobs, Tourism, Science and Innovation dedicated to supporting local businesses in securing government contracts. The initiative provides essential assistance in navigating procurement processes, accessing contract opportunities, and enhancing competitiveness.

WA Industry Link aims to maximise local content in government projects, driving economic growth and job creation across WA. A key feature of the WA Industry Link is the Western Australian Industry Participation Strategy (WAIPS), which is a significant outcome of the WA Government’s Plan for Jobs and the Western Australian Jobs Act 2017.   

The WA Industry Link content includes useful information for businesses and WA Government agencies including: 

  • Policy and further information about WAIPS. 
  • Guides for businesses and agencies on how to complete WAIPS requirements through the online Portal. 
  • Advisory services and financial support programs such as the Local Capability Fund. 
  • Links to Local, State and Federal Government supply opportunities. 
  • Relevant news and events.

The WAIPS process is exclusively online. To log in or register an account:
