The Western Australian Government has unveiled a new online dashboard for tenders which it says will help the state’s construction industry.
The interactive dashboard, which features $8.7 billion worth of public works according to the government, features current and planned non-residential building as well as larger infrastructure projects like hospitals and schools.
“This dashboard will be a key tool in helping these local companies to plan ahead, prepare and bid for potential jobs and make adjustments to their business as required, like increasing their workforce, to deliver these vital projects,” Treasurer Rita Saffioti said.
According to the government, the dashboard increases transparency around infrastructure spending and provides a trusted source of information. Part of this measure will see the dashboard updated with forecasts and data to attract new entrants to Western Australia’s building market.
“The interactive dashboard assists local businesses as they plan and prepare to bid for WA Government tenders relating to non-residential and other infrastructure projects,” Finance Minister Sue Ellery said.
“This will also support efforts to expand market capacity to deal with the current and future work volume.
“I encourage local industry to click on to this new user-friendly dashboard and view the upcoming tendering opportunities across WA.”
Programs of works, ICT-related projects and METRONET and other Transport-related projects continue to be available from other State Government agency websites and publications.
