Accelerated opportunities for local businesses

We recently launched a new procurement and packaging plan to industry that aims to accelerate opportunities for regional businesses to participate in upcoming construction package tenders. We caught up with the Goondiwindi Chamber of Commerce committee to brief them on what this means for local businesses.

Supporting local jobs, communities and regional economies is embedded in our procurement process.
