Consultation on Secure Local Jobs Package

The ACT Government is seeking feedback on its consultation draft Secure Local Jobs Package.

The Secure Local Jobs Package will introduce an integrated suite of measures directed at ensuring that the ACT Government only awards contracts to businesses that meet the highest ethical and labour standards.

The package will:

  • streamline existing procurement requirements;
  • enhance compliance and enforcement measures; and
  • provide a clear, transparent process for resolving issues that arise with respect to ACT Government contracts.

The package is intended to drive higher standards and ensure that there is a level playing field for businesses that abide by their industrial relations and employment obligations and ensure that competitors do not benefit from avoiding their legal obligations.
