Tenders and employment opportunities

Engaging local industry and supporting local jobs are priorities for the North Queensland Stadium project.

Opportunities for local companies to tender for work on the stadium are being maximised by:

  • implementing Watpac’s local industry engagement plan including meeting with local businesses to assess their capability and capacity and then adjusting how works are packaged
  • applying the Queensland Procurement Policy 2018
  • contracting the local content services of the Industry Capability Network (ICN), a not-for-profit organisation that helps to engage local businesses during the procurement process
  • supporting local businesses to better position themselves to tender and win work through the Queensland Government’s Strengthening North Queensland

Watpac is targeting 80% of hours spent building the stadium to be by locals and 80% of the value of the project to be spent on local subcontractors and suppliers.

Watpac is also targeting 6.6% of the construction workforce be Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander people.

Registering your business’ interest

Invitations for expressions of interest in most of trade packages for the North Queensland Stadium project have now closed.

Should any new trade packages be required Watpac will list them on the ICN Gateway.

Businesses with an interest in participating in any of the remaining trade packages for the North Queensland Stadium project are encouraged to complete the following three steps:

  1. Check the ICN gateway to see what work packages remain open for expressions of interest.
  2. Establish a company profile (and capability statement) on the ICN Gateway.
  3. Lodge an expression of interest (EOI) for the partial and/or full scope work packages.

For assistance using the ICN Gateway, call 07 3364 0670 or email info@icnqld.org.au.

Trade package requests for tender

A shortlist of suitable businesses that have registered through the ICN Gateway will be invited to tender each trade package. Trade packages are being progressively released for tender in line with the project program.

In situations where suitable businesses cannot be identified from those that have expressed interest through the ICN Gateway, or where no businesses have expressed interest through the ICN Gateway, alternative processes will be used to procure the required packages of work.
