VIPP Strategic Projects – Forward Plan

August 2016

The Victorian Government is committed to using government procurement to generate local jobs and boost economic activity.

This forward plan lists current and upcoming Victorian government VIPP Strategic Projects to provide industry with early notification and to enhance opportunities to engage in government procurement projects.

Strategic Projects under VIPP are major projects that have an estimated total project value of $50 million or more, excluding maintenance and operational costs. Maintenance projects valued at $50 million or more will be classified as Strategic Projects.

For each Strategic Project, the government sets a minimum local content requirement that project proponents are required to meet. This ensures that local spending means local jobs.

Additional details regarding the project specifications for Strategic Projects are provided at the project links within the below table. For further information on the projects and to register your interest please refer to ICN Victoria Pty Ltd on forwardplan.icn.org.au
