Government—tendering arrangements

MR WALL (Brindabella) (5.25): I move:

That this Assembly:

(1) notes:

(a) the importance of locally owned and operated small, medium and family business investment to the ACT economy;

(b) the low weighting given to local small, medium and family businesses in the tender assessment process for ACT Government contracts;

(c) CityWide Service Solutions, a wholly owned subsidiary of Melbourne City Council, have recently been awarded the contract for dryland grass mowing along arterial roads and connecting roads in the ACT;

(d) the impact on local small, medium and family business as a result of contracts being awarded to interstate and overseas contractors; and

(e) the flow on effect to the ACT economy as a result of keeping contracts local; and

(2) calls on the ACT Government to:

(a) outline the long term economic impact to the ACT as a result of allowing contracts to move interstate and overseas;

(b) review the process that allowed CityWide Service Solutions to be awarded the contract for dryland grass mowing along arterial roads and connecting roads in the ACT with a review to be tabled in the Assembly by the last sitting day of March 2015; and

(c) ensure that a fair weighting is given to local small, medium and family business in the tender assessment process for ACT Government contracts.
