Building Local Capability

The government has in place a range of financial and advisory programs to help businesses build capability, capacity and competitiveness in the supply chain. Local Content Advisers promote these programs and support local businesses to access these opportunities.

Local Capability Funds

The Local Capability Fund assists small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in Western Australia to increase their capability and competitiveness as suppliers of products, services and works to the State Government and the marketplace generally.

The fund included the Western Australian Industry Participation Strategy (WAIPS) round and the Regional Aboriginal Business round. Both are now closed for 2018/2019 Financial Year.
