Industry and construction
We partner with leading Australian and international construction, manufacturing and engineering companies to deliver Victoria’s Big Build.
We also partner with small and medium-sized local businesses.
Industry partners are appointed following a robust and transparent procurement process for each project.
Becoming a supplier on Victoria’s Big Build
To register interest in getting your business involved:
- Register at the ICN Gateway with your areas of interest and capabilities. The Gateway is an online database that allows the project and suppliers to build procurement partnerships.
- If you are a construction business, register with the Construction Supplier Register.
- Register with government tender websites to find other suitable contracts, Business Victoria has some great tips.
- Keep an eye out for industry events and briefings for our projects.
Local Jobs First
Procurement for our projects is supported by the Victorian Government’s Local Jobs First Policy, which ensures that small and medium size enterprises are given a full and fair opportunity to compete for both large and small government contracts.
As part of this policy, 10% of total work hours on Victoria's Big Build will be done by apprentices, trainees or cadets.
