The WA Government has developed a new policy to manage Market-led Proposals (MLPs), harness innovative ideas from the private sector and create jobs for Western Australians which will commence next month.
MLPs are proposals from the private or not for profit sector to build or finance infrastructure, or provide goods or services where the State Government has not requested the proposal. These proposals are generally outside of the normal competitive procurement processes of government but may deliver value to the community.
The MLP policy will act as an avenue for industry and will provide a single clear, consistent and transparent process for parties seeking to approach government with unsolicited proposals.
The policy will commence operation on April 12 and will include an online portal with all the relevant information and tools for industry to submit proposals.
