Local Content Adviser Program

Local Content Adviser Program

Your local Content Adviser, supporting business growth in the South West

The State Government launched the Local Content Program to maximise the participation of local businesses in regional supply or works contracting opportunities.

Recognising that it can often be challenging for businesses to access and engage as a supplier, Local Content Advisers take a lead role in promoting supply opportunities and facilitating regional business capability and growth. In the South West region, your Local Content Adviser Zoe Bodycoat is available to assist local businesses.

As part of the Local Content Adviser Network, the Local Content Adviser, is dedicated to connecting across Government Agencies, industry bodies, and Small to Medium Enterprises (SMEs). This role is an essential component of the WA Industry Link initiative under the Western Australian Jobs Act 2017. Local Content in regional WA is supported through the WA Buy Local Policy, which is designed to ensure regional businesses can benefit from the State Government’s expenditure on goods, services and works.
