Australian Industry Participation (AIP) requirements ensure full, fair and reasonable opportunity for Australian industry to compete for work. This includes work in major public and private projects in Australia, and procurements or projects receiving Australian Government funding of $20 million or more.
The Australian Industry Participation National Framework [230KB PDF] commits the Australian Government and state and territory governments to adopting a consistent national approach to maximise Australian industry participation in major projects in Australia and overseas. Each jurisdiction also has its own industry participation policies aimed at increasing Australian industry participation.
The Australian Jobs Act 2013 (the Jobs Act) requires proponents of major projects with capital expenditure of $500 million or more to provide opportunity for Australian industry to bid to supply key goods and services.
Section 127 of the Jobs Act requires an operational review of the Act be conducted within the first five years. The 2018 review recommended improvements to processes and communication of activities and outcomes.
The Australian Jobs (Australian Industry Participation) Rule 2014 details exemptions to the requirement for an AIP plan, notification obligations, compliance requirements, and the functions of the Australian Industry Participation Authority.
