About Market-led Proposals

Premier's media statement: Clear pathway for businesses and government to create WA jobs - 28 June 2018

The State Government is developing a draft Market-led Proposals (MLP) Policy. The MLP Policy will provide an innovative pathway for businesses and government to work together to create jobs and stimulate the economy. Establishing a mechanism to receive and evaluate unsolicited proposals from the private sector is an election commitment as part of the McGowan Labor Government’s Plan for Jobs.

An MLP is a proposal from the private sector to government to build and/or finance infrastructure; provide goods or services; or to purchase a government-owned asset, where government has not requested the proposal.

The Policy will provide a single portal to industry and a clear, consistent and transparent process for parties seeking to approach government with proposals. The Policy will outline how the government will evaluate the merits of such proposals and determine whether it is in the public interest to enter exclusive negotiations with a proponent, rather than engaging in the usual competitive process.

Further information on the proposal is provided in the documents below.
