About the VIPP

These VIPP Guidelines were applied on 1 January 2013.

The VIPP requires Victorian Government departments and agencies to consider opportunities for competitive local suppliers, including SMEs, when awarding contracts.

VIPP Objectives

The Victorian Industry Participation Policy Act 2003 (the VIPP Act) sets out the main objectives of the VIPP as follows:
  • Promoting employment and business growth by expanding market opportunities for local industry
  • Providing contractors with increased access to, and raised awareness of, local industry capability
  • Exposing local industry to world's best practice in workplace innovation, e-commerce and use of new technologies and materials
  • Developing local industry's international competitiveness and flexibility in responding to changing global markets by giving local industry a fair opportunity to compete against foreign suppliers.
