Have Your Say: Measures to Extend Australian Industry Participation

| November 23, 2011

You’re invited to comment on measures to extend Australian industry participation outlined in a consultation paper released by the Minister for Innovation, Industry, Science and Research earlier this month.

Proposed changes include improving access to large government grants over $20 million for Australian businesses, tightening the administration of the Enhanced Project By-law Scheme (EPBS), and publication of Australian Industry Participation (AIP) plans and outcomes.

Prime Minister Julia Gillard announced the measures at the Jobs Forum held in October and the Government is now seeking public input on its plans to extend the AIP.

Submissions on the consultation paper will be made available to the Working Group, who will take stakeholder input into account when advising the Minister for Innovation, Industry, Science and Research on the implementation of the measures. 

Membership of the Working Group includes industry representatives, unions, Commonwealth agencies as well as state and territory government representatives.

Closing date for submissions: 5:00pm AEDST on Monday, 12 December 2011.
