Local Business Participation Program
White Rock Solar Farm is committed to local sourcing where feasible, the Local Business Participation Program was a key initiative to identify capacity in the local community and maximise opportunities for local suppliers to participate in the project.
Stage one – Expressions of Interest
White Rock Solar Farm was listed on the Industry Capability Network (ICN) Gateway. Businesses with an ABN were able to register their business and submit Expressions of Interest (EOI) on the project page. A database of all EOIs submitted was provided to the main contractor.
Stage two – Further Information
An Industry Briefing was held in Glen Innes. This provided local businesses with additional information about the available work packages and the process of bidding for subcontracting or supply opportunities with the major subcontractors.
Stage three – Engagement of Contractors
The main contractor engaged suppliers and subcontractors according to their procurement processes.
