Mark McGowan says the new laws will provide a boost to jobs in WA.

Jobs Bill addresses auditor general concerns

The state parliament has passed legislation today that seeks to guarantee Western Australian businesses a larger share of government contracts, with the government saying it addressed major flaws the auditor general found in the existing Buy Local policy in a report tabled earlier this week.

Under the new laws, titled the Jobs Bill, prospective suppliers of government contracts will now be required to submit local participation plans as part of their tender.

These plans will then be incorporated into the contracts of successful suppliers in an attempt to guarantee local businesses a bigger share of contracts.

Good job; that's a start to a long list of things that need to be corrected in this state of ours.
